Angie Lewins’ new book ‘ Plants and Places ‘

October 31, 2010

I’m delighted to tell you that an amazing new book by Angie Lewin has finally got to my door.

It’s called Plants and Places and is published by Merrell. You can tell it’s been so lovingly put together

that even the pattern on the inner pages somehow announces how good this book will prove to be,

and it has surpassed all my expectations.

There are lovely examples of drawings which explain Angies’ thought process when considering a

new lino cut or illustration.

Even the shots of the carved wooden blocks that Angie uses to layer up her artwork are so

beautifully photographed, they make you want to be there in her sunny studio,

observing another masterpiece take shape and come to life.

I was so pleased they included this shot of the Ravilious mugs that feature time and again

in various illustrations. I’ve mentioned this connection before here.

Some bits and pieces from her collage work. More examples here.

Earlier this year Angie was asked by Coast magazine to create a lino cut print

to reinvent the seaside poster, the Salthouse Poster was her response. An edition of this was auctioned

on Ebay in May and £4900 was raised for the Marine Conservation Society.

I included these just to give some perspective of the scale of some of the images Angie creates.

A beautiful book and thank you to Angie Lewin for letting us into her studio.

Plants and Places is available to purchase here.

    How beautiful these are!
    Funny, I had never considered lino on a larger scale than A5 (that’s what we had to use at college). Let me in that print room now!!

      She must have a very steady hand to cut that lettering.
