We just got a shipment of new TATE books! Read on to quickly get up to speed with the new publications.
William Blake: The Artist is an exhibition-accompanying book about the famous 18th century poet as an artist showing off his various paintings, illustrations, prints and watercolours. Fittingly, there was also a newly released edition of his Songs of Innocence and of Experience. This one has gilded pages!
Look out in the coming weeks for a podcast that has this book in focus. In the meantime click here for a short introduction to the book.
We also got some new exhibition-accompanying books about rather distinct and remarkable artists in stock. Two of them: Mark Leckey: O’ Magic Power of Bleakness, a book published for Leckey’s first major exhibition at TATE, and an introduction to renowned Hungarian artist Dóra Maurer. A special treat in this section is Takis, the first-ever English-language publication on this infamous greek artist and his influence on contemporary art. The last new exhibition book is Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life, part of the first UK retrospective, showing the Danish-Icelandic’s large installations and sculptures.
For those of you trying to take up the struggle, treat yourself with A Little Feminist History of Art, learning all about the most important and interesting artworks borne out of the feminist art movement. On that note, also make sure to check out The Art Of Feminism.
If you are still looking for Christmas gifts (I still am), look no further. With Love and Winter, there are two thematic-centric books, portraying a selection of the most transformative expressions of love and winter drawn from Tate’s collection, respectively.
Last but not least, if all of that is too specific for you and you would rather know more about TATE itself, go buy the revised and updated edition of TATE Modern: Highlights, an introduction to the building and the artworks on display there.
You can get all of the mentioned books and more by TATE and other publishers in our bookstore at the Blue House, 151 Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood. You can also order online through our website.
