Présentation de l'éditeur pour chaque livre

Drawing from the city

‘Take me to the city,’ the young girl whispers to the train, as it passes her dusty village.

Her name is Teju. She is now a middle aged woman, and in this book, she has narrated her incredible journey from endemic poverty into the rich inner world of art, in her self-taught style of lines and dots.

Page after page of sumptuous art is witness to a woman’s life, caught between endemic poverty and a rich imaginative inner world. Drawing from the City reflects upon hardship while also celebrating the remarkable story of a spirited woman.

The Exquisite Book

In The Exquisite Book, one hundred indie artists play an ingenious version of the Exquisite Corpse drawing game. Each adorns a page with artworkhaving seen only the page of the artist immediately prior and using a single horizon line to connect the two. Some continue the "story" quite literally while others build on the previous page in more fanciful ways. This astonishing volume's format is as unique as its content, with each of the book's ten chapters residing on a ten-page accordion pull-out, allowing readers to view the art continuously. With an illustrated foreword by Dave Eggers, and art from such luminaries as James Jean and Jill Bliss, this charming book is, simply, exquisite.

Compendium of me

Playful and personal in equal measure, Compendium of Me is Orpin’s debut book and traces the objects, spaces and foodstuffs that define her colour-drenched creative and domestic life.
