Book Description

1 Oct 2010
The artist Angie Lewin has a unique vision of the natural world. Her hugely popular prints depict in intricate detail the native flora of a variety of environments, from salt marsh and Highland loch, to flower-strewn meadow and wild garden. Lewin finds beauty in each landscape, whatever the season, and is particularly inspired by plant forms: slender reeds, stately goatsbeard, spiky teasels and sculptural seed heads. 'Plants and Places' presents over 70 of Lewin's beautifully crafted linocuts and wood engravings. The works are grouped according to habitat such as coast, woodland and hedgerow, and garden together with drawings, paintings and collages from Lewin's sketchbooks of grasses, seed pods, seaweed, shells and other objects that she has collected on her walks. In an engaging introduction, Leslie Geddes-Brown meets Lewin in her studio, discusses her artistic inspirations and her fascination with plants, and describes how she creates her prints.

By chipin
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A beautifully produced book with 191 pages and most of them covered with Angie Lewin's fabulous prints and illustrations. This book is exceptionally good value for money, it is the next best thing to owning the original prints. A lovely 'coffee table' book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beauty and Colour 8 Dec 2010
A lovely book, full of colour, presenting Angie Lewin's unique style. As an inspiration to an aspiring artist, the initial pencil and wash studies and then the final product - print, woodblock, textile or pottery - are full of life and movement. I can't stop leafing through it. Something for those interested in nature and in art and painting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A feast for the eyes 28 Oct 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having fallen for the designs on Angie Lewin cards and studying printing in textiles, I couldn't resist buying this book......and I wasn't disappointed. She has a distinctive style which comes from detailed observation and a passion for what she does. The quality of the prints in this book is excellent; they can be enjoyed in isolation or along side the text which gives an insight into how Angie Lewin works. It is one of those books that will never disappoint however often you browse it.

5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous plant prints 18 May 2011
I first came across Angie Lewin's work when I returned to College to do an art course. As part of the printmaking sessions we were asked to source a printmaker and discuss their work. I chose Angie because I love her prints of flowers and plants. Her ability to simplify plants to their bare essentials and still be instantly recognisable is endearing. This is a beautifully produced book that catalogues and does justice to Angie's work. The 80 plus designs are an inspiration to printmakers and textile artists alike. It is also a record of Angie's travels - the places she took inspiration from. Her distinctive prints that capture the essence and structure of plants have been inspired by windswept shores, clifftops, salt marshes, roadsides and in her own Norfolk garden. She talks about her influences. The book is well illustrated not only with Angie's prints but also with photographs of plants and sketches from her sketchbooks. Her wood engravings or linocuts adorn journals and textiles. She also works in lithography and screenprinting. The text gives an insight to how Angie works. Some of my favourite prints are the Clifftop, Alliums and Fennel, Dandelion, Teasels and Winter Spey prints. The book is divided into sections that reflect Angie's work: Coast, Woodland and Hedgerow, River and Loch, Meadow and Garden and finally Studio. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys contemporary prints. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

3.0 out of 5 stars a little too similar to a catalogue 5 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
the book is a catalogue of images of the works of the talented Angie Lewin. Nothing wrong or disappointing, but I remained with the curiosity of knowing a little bit more of the artist: pictures of her working area, more detailed 'work-in-progress',personal ways of working, preferred materials...all the individual part of this artist is barely touched, and it is a pity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, inspiring book 16 Aug 2011
By Hil
I spotted Angie Lewin's cards in a gallery a few years ago and always buy them when I see them, so I was thrilled to find this book. I love the sketches and workings as well as the finished prints, and although it's a "coffee table" book I read it from cover to cover straight away. Her perspective on ordinary plants is so inspiring that I found myself looking at a patch of weeds by the side of a roundabout in a whole new way the other day!
