Abstract

Tania Kovats believes that drawing is a mechanism for exploration as much as a tool for representation. In this beautiful book, she brings together drawings by map-makers, writers, shipbuilders, whalers, soldiers, sailors, artists, archaeologists, cartographers, scientists, uranographers, engineers and dreamers – a diverse selection united by the sense that in making the drawing they are looking for something.

Item Type: Book
Note:

This was Kovats’ second publication on drawing and consisted of her writing on a collection of drawing all thematically linked by the sea.
