New Books . . . drawing . . . and more

Milton Glaser: Drawing is Thinking: “For more than fifty years, Milton Glaser has designed much of the world we live and experience every day. His posters, books, albums, restaurants, advertisements, and so much more have identified him as the preeminent force in design in America. Now, in Drawing is Thinking, Glaser draws upon an amazing vocabulary of images and techniques to create his most personal book to date…” (book jacket)

Drawing People: The Human Figure in Contemporary Art by Roger Malbert: The act of drawing has long been considered the foundation of an artistic education, and the life class essential to the formation of an artist’s style and technique. Yet in the contemporary art world drawing is increasingly regarded as a medium in its own right, and the figure as a subject for on-going exploration well beyond the sketchbook. This book presents an illustrated survey of the most compelling and inventive drawings of the human form being produced today by 70 contemporary artists from around the world.

Drawing – in and outside – writing. Rebecca Fortnum, Kelly Chorpening, Peter Morrens and Ans  Nys.
