Jenny Pery's earlier book, Alan Cotton: On a Knife Edge gave a biographical study of the artist; here she focuses on his methods of work as he prepares for an exhibition. Through photographs of work-in-progress and reproductions of finished pieces, the book reveals how Cotton's ideas take shape through drawing in the landscape and how, from those drawings, he composes the knife paintings that have made his name.
