Sanctuary – Britain’s Artists and their Studios

Posted in Publication with tags , , , , , , on January 6, 2013 by wallkandy

Sanctuary Book

A New Year and so a New Year’s resolution to try and blog at least once per week.

The first of 2013 is book related. Sanctuary was published in 2012 by Thames and Hudson and runs to an impressive 600 pages.  After picking this book up a couple of days back I haven’t been able to put it down.  The list of artists is impressive as is the photography and text, one of the best art related books I’ve seen in a long time.

Here are some words from Thames and Hudson

Surveying 120 artists living and working in Britain today, from the most noteworthy to new, upcoming talent, Sanctuary offers a feast of specially commissioned photographs while following each artist through their working routines. Tony Cragg, Antony Gormley, Jenny Saville, Anish Kapoor, Mark Wallinger, Phyllida Barlow, Jane and Louise Wilson, Thomas Houseago, Tracey Emin, the Chapman Brothers, Adam Neate and many others.

In addition to individual interviews with all the artists featured in the book, three essays explore the meanings, configurations and personalities of a huge range of studio settings and environments in contemporary British art.

I know Faile have been working on this book long and hard for a few months now so it’s great to see some news on the publishers website of a book that is sure to be on most fans shopping list, it’s certainly on mine.  Gestalten, who also brought us Beyond the Street, show the book as being available in September of this year so fans will have to be a little patient.

Faile have been very busy over the last few months with not only preparing this book but also their show Fluxx Deluxx together with Bäst at Lazarides in London & then New York. We’ve also seen some really nice print releases in this time.

Whilst the books won’t be ready for release until September you can pre-order your copy to ensure you receive it as early as possible.  The published prices will be € 44,00 / $ 69,00 / £ 40,00 but it is available with a discount on pre-order.
