| |Art New books and highlights Spring 2012Welcome
One of 2012’s highlights will undoubtedly be London’s Olympic Games. Scores of athletes
will travel with British Airways (BA), official carriers for the Olympics, in search of sporting
glory. Published to coincide with the Games, British Aviation Posters (see p. 2), produced in
collaboration with BA and its archive, shows how art and design, but with a special focus on
posters, were applied with great creativity and style to develop and promote aviation in the
UK and beyond. Including the work of an impressive range of artists and designers, the book
will be a must for art, design and aviation specialists and enthusiasts.
Poster art is just one of a range of media represented in this season’s varied list.
Complementing British Aviation Posters is a new book exploring the maps produced by
the Underground, London Transport and its successor Transport for London (see p.3).
Discussing early decorative maps, as exemplified by the work of Macdonald (Max) Gill,
and the recognisable diagrammatic maps of more recent times, London Underground
Maps provides a fascinating account of the capital’s innovative approach to decoding
and promoting its complex underground network. With the arts of tapestry (see p.6) and
ceramics (see p.9) also featuring within the pages of this catalogue, there will be something
here to whet a range of appetites!
If you’re looking for more of the best in modern British painting and sculpture, you’ll be
excited by our latest selection of monographs. Prunella Clough (see p. 4), written by Frances
Spalding, and packed with original research, provides the first comprehensive account of
this remarkable British artist. Elsewhere, the tension between Francis Bacon’s ardent atheism
and his recurrent use of religious symbols (see p.5) is explored expertly by Rina Arya. With a
paperback edition of the hugely successful Kurt Jackson: A New Genre of Landscape Painting
(see p. 7), a new book on innovative British artist Richard Woods (see p.7) and the latest
volume in the prestigious British Sculptors and Sculpture series (see p. 9) also forthcoming,
there is plenty here to keep your library up-to-date.
Lund Humphries is also pleased to announce a new series of accessible, practical handbooks
on International Art Business (see p. 8). Published in collaboration with Sotheby’s Institute,
these authoritative reference guides will be invaluable for professionals working within art
businesses of all kinds, as well those preparing for careers in the commercial art world.
For more information about these and other books on our list, visit our website www.
lundumphries.com, where you can take advantage of a discount of 10% on all books ordered
online. And while you’re ordering, you’ll be able to explore the fabulous new features of
our newly designed web-pages. Packed with more information for readers, authors and
publishing partners, we hope that you will find the new-look website both more informative
and user-friendly. As always, do let us know what you think – comments are always
welcome!
