ALPHABET: BILL WOODROW. {Title from cover.} Royal Academy of Arts, London, 2013. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Abrams, New York. 62 pp. with 30 col. ills. 24 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781907533839 In English.
This publication is a facsimile of a book of drawings made in 1986. Publisher's description: B is for Mutant? Z is for Secret? Bill Woodrow's unique alphabet offers a glimpse into a playful and endlessly inventive artistic mind. Part sketchbook, part riddle, this small clothbound book presents Woodrow's weird and whimsical look at letters that turns the ordinary on its head. One of Britain's foremost sculptors, Woodrow (b. 1948) is best known for his transformations of everyday objects into new forms; like those works, the deceptively simple illustrations in this alphabet unravel the commonplace to suggest surprising new meanings.
