DESIGN


Another instalment of the highly acclaimed Designseries, this time looking at contemporary designer David Gentleman (b.1930). David’s early training engraving designs on small boxwood blocks ensured that his unique style retains the characteristic intensity of the miniaturist even when it is enlarged. He attended the Royal College of Art in Kensington from the autumn of 1950, and was tutored by some of the finest artists of the time, including Edward Bawden and John Nash. Lithography became his medium of choice and he has since worked on projects as diverse as designs for postage stamps and wine labels to the hundred-metre long panels at Charing Cross Station.

ARTWORK


The lives of most people in Britain, whether they realise it or not, have been touched by David Gentleman. From his many stamp designs, in which he has gradually transformed the way the Queen appears, to his timeless corporate logos for companies such as British Steel and the famous Eleanor Cross murals at Charing Cross underground station, David Gentleman’s art has both shaped and given voice to the changing design trends of five decades. In Art Work he gives a fascinating insight not only into his working methods but also into the whole process of design as an art, and art as a job. This major collection features his most significant commissions, highlighting the extraordinary breadth of his work and including stamps and posters, wood engravings and graphics, screen-prints and his trademark watercolours.

LONDON, YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL: AN ARTIST’S YEAR


David Gentleman has been drawing London all his adult life, and for the past year has spent his days focused on looking afresh at the city. The resulting book of sketches, drawings and watercolours, arranged month by month, shows a year in the life of London and reveals the city that is hidden in plain view. From its surprising expanse of sky to the crushed closeness of the tube, from Rainham Marshes to Hampstead Heath, David Gentleman gives us London on a human scale. Accompanied by his thoughts on looking and drawing, whether it is what catches his eye in a certain square or selecting the media – pencil, pen and ink, watercolour – best suited to capture each of the city’s various aspects, as well as his reflections on the place he has lived in for over sixty years, this is a book for all those inspired by London, art and design.
