Derek Jarman's Sketchbooks

Stephen Farthing & Ed Webb-ingall (Eds) (Thames & Hudson) Available from Arnolfini Bookshop £28.00

There are few more complete examples of an artist’s record of their own life than the intimately detailed and beautifully produced books that Derek Jarman created throughout his career.

Seen together they reveal the story of how he gathered, shaped and made concrete his ideas. Containing poetry, drawings, pressed flowers, photographs, scripts and notes, the sketchbooks are part autobiography and part social history, bursting with the energy and creativity of this groundbreaking artist. Wholly private during his lifetime, these precious books reveal the detailed planning – and creative and emotional engagement – behind each of his films.
