New Drawing Instruments
A recent addition to the anatomical collection
As it has been advertised on the Princeton Architectural Press website (see here), here is the cover of Pamphlet 34. The edition covers a range of work by Perry Kulper and myself including some new collaborative work that plays out some of the ideas we have been working with individually. It is also available on Amazon, see a few posts back for links.
Working with Perry worked out well and we are in hatching a few new plots at the moment.
This wonderful bronze torosaurus at the Yale Peabody Museum was sculpted by Michael Anderson (and helpers) working with as much scientific advice as the museum could muster. It is a fitter, leaner beast than we often see in recreations. I have mentioned Michel before in this blog (and there is a link to his excellent biography of James Perry Wilson in the Blogroll) – he was amazingly generous with his help, advice and his own research when I was working on my research into Wilson’s methods of diorama projection. You can see more about Michael’s work in this short film here.
Good News – Pamphlet 34
We heard today that Pamphlet 34 has gone to press, so it should be out in a couple of months.
Perry Kulper and I have been exchanging ideas and pieces of work for the past few years and in Pamphlet 34 have made some collaborative pieces of work. Given that we are in different time zones – Perry in Ann Arbor Michigan USA and I am in Brighton, East Sussex in the UK – the nature of the collaboration requires quite particular modes of operation. But it has been a blast working with Perry and a delight to get his fresh views on things through the process.
If you would like to pre-order a copy you can find them on Amazon HERE in the UK and HERE in the US.
