This month, DAF is pleased to be giving away a copy of the newly released book English Graphic by Tom Lubbock (1958-2011)
English Graphic is a collection of essays on the subject of illustration, focusing entirely on English artists using “graphic media”: drawings, prints and watercolors. The pieces are largely drawn from Tom Lubbock’s weekly Great Works column for The Independent, with some longer pieces originally published as reviews or catalog essays.
Connecting and overlapping ideas on line and shape, more than fifty images range from the visionary to the empirical, from folk art to caricature. The historical span of the book is broad, from the Uffington White Horse to the Winchester Psalter Hellmouth to Harry Beck’s London Underground Map and beyond. The high point of English Graphic art in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries is at the heart of the book, featuring extended essays on Fuseli, Blake, Bewick, and Palmer.
