ALPHABETBILL WOODROW Book Number: 88804 Product format: Hardback
B is for Mutant? D is for Nostril? Z is for Secret? Bill Woodrow's unique alphabet offers a glimpse into a playful and endlessly inventive artistic mind. Part sketchbook, part riddle, this Royal Academy Publications clothbound book presents the artist's weird and whimsical look at letters as he turns the ordinary on its head. One of Britain's foremost sculptors, Woodrow (born 1948) is best known for his transformations of everyday objects into new forms and his alphabet unravels the commonplace to suggest surprising new meanings. T is learning to read and Q is for colour or black and white with a repeated picture of televisions and L for Lampshade a bomber dropping bombs and a helicopter dropping a long rope ladder. A rather bizarre and unusual offering we have discovered this 2013 Royal Academy of Arts first edition. 64 pages, maroon clothbound and with tipped in illustration front and back.
