A teacher at Glasgow School of art, an exhibitor at the 1951 Festival of Britain and a textile designer for Liberty’s, Robert Stewart (1924–1995) dazzled the design world of the 1950s and 1960s. His passion was for surface design on textiles, tapestries, ceramics and paintings. This celebration of his life and achievements is richly illustrated with photographs that demonstrate the breadth of his work and provides a fascinating insight into British post-war design.
Travels With My Sketchbook
Michael Foreman dreamed of seeing the world as a boy, but never imagined his artistic talents would enable him to travel, first through a scholarship to visit America and subsequently with commissions to document North Sea oil rigs and the World Fair in Japan. Including a football game in the Andes and pony-trekking in Kashmir, Foreman’s travelogue, which spans the 1960s to the 1990s, is illustrated with his line drawings and watercolours.
