LISTS OF NOTE


LISTS OF NOTE

SHAUN USHER    Book Number: 86839    Product format: Hardback

Just as he did with Letters of Note, Shaun Usher has trawled the world's archives to produce a rich visual anthology from a To Do List of Leonardo da Vinci's to Charles Darwin on the pros and cons of marriage or the list of reasons for labourers' work absences in the year 40 of Ramses II found in an Ancient Egyptian village. One excuse was 'wrapping the corpse of his mother' and another 'drinking with Khonsu.' Read Henry Miller's Eleven Commandments beginning with 'Work on one thing at a time until finished' and ending with 'Write first and always. Painting, music, friends, cinema, all these things come afterwards.' It is a collection of the most memorable and illuminating lists ever created and includes a shopping list written by two 9th century Tibetan monks, the BFG's favourite words, 19 year old Isaac Newton's list of the 57 sins he had already committed and many more in this tragic, brilliantly incisive, funny and historic stupendous compendium. A beautiful big heavyweight book, 318pp with photographs of the manuscripts in full page throughout. Colour. 8" x 11", pagemarker.
