It's possible that I'm a little biased about this book; I was Kyra's studio assistant for a year and a half when I was a student. And in that time I saw how integral drawing was to her making practice, how her ceramic work is itself a form of drawing. In this book she asks makers from all disciplines to share how they use drawing in their work. And let's be clear, drawing can have an incredibly broad definition for people, and that is what is so wonderful about this book. It reveals the secrets that we all know already, that everyone draws differently, with different purposes, with different styles. Some of it might be art in its own right, some might be scrappy ideas or designs put onto paper. This book is inspirational and reassuring. It reminds me that making comes in many forms, that your making practice can cover so many things, including drawing, and writing. That this interplay of looking, thinking, recording, imagining, and making is what it's all about.
My book choice this month (September 2016) is: Making & Drawing by Kyra Cane (published by A&C Black).
You can see her work here, and you can see some of my writing/drawing/making/thinking work here.
