This review is from: Angie Lewin: Plants and Places (Hardcover)
This is a seductive book, providing a fascinating insight into the world of a very talented printmaker and artist. The chapters are divided into "coast", "woodland and hedgerow", "river and loch", "meadow and garden" and "studio". Each chapter opens with some beautiful photography and text detailing the background to the locations for Lewin's art as well as interesting personal details "..we accidentally found a derelict croft on the side of a hill looking out on to Ben Rinnes and later bought it.....the views are truly wonderful and ever changing"... The illustrations throughout are utterly beautiful, I can happily sit with a cup of coffee and browse through the pages for hours. What is very special is to follow the artist from inspirational pebble, seedhead or wildflower via sensitively rendered, delicate notebook drawings to finely detailed and skillfully produced print or fabric. Completely absorbing and deeply inspirational. Highly recommended.
