today is a difficult book to show - simply because every single page is filled with such lovely designs and prints it was tricky to know which ones to pick! I think most people will be familiar with Angie Lewin's work so I have chosen to showcase some other areas of the book rather than the final pieces...
Angie Lewin - Plants and Places
the book is splits into 5 main areas: Coast, woodland and Hedgerow, River and Loch, Meadow and Garden, and Studio:
workings for 'Dandelion'
you can literally see how the designs start as painting and sketches and follow them right through to the final prints, as with the 'Salthouse' design below:
sketchbook and workings for 'Salthouse'
'The Church, Salthouse' initial sketches
'The Church, Salthouse' final design
the book holds a wealth of knowledge on Angie and her inspirations, her workings and methodology:
initial paintings - i wish i could paint like that! [sigh]
workings and final print of 'Winterspey'
in full working mode!
one of Angie's finalised linos for the design 'Spey Seedheads'
testing colours on Japanese paper
i love how the book shows everything about Angie's thinking - you can see dabs of colours for testing out palettes and combinations, little notes and scribbles...it's great to have a little insight into how her mind works!
'Alliums and Fennel', from start to finish
some examples of Angie's prints as repeats patterns
it can be bought from Amazon.co.uk for £17.50 or at Amazon.com for $29.85...enjoy!
