“This book is a feast for the eyes. Stunning photography capturing a time and place and fabulous 1970’s fashion. A definite favourite of mine.” — Debbie
“Don’t be late to the party on the work of Olga Jevric because you will kick yourself. An artist who’s prolific oeuvre is starting to become a more well known name amongst the masses, Jevric manages to convey thought and feeling through material and form. Beautiful work.” — Claire
“I just couldn’t wait for this book to turn up. The beautiful slate-based forms created by this architect, and this gorgeous book published alongside are just so intricate and so fitting and satisfying. This is one I’m treating myself to, for sure.” — Suzanne
“A wonderful collection of mainly young painters who are bringing a cerebral depth back to painting. A book that will repay hours of looking for all fans of painting.” — Henry
“Cinematic in their scale, I love her profound, animistic images that capture the ancestral spirit of landscapes (reproduced beautifully in this book). The intricate costumes she creates enable her to embody noble, shaman-like personas. In an age of ecological, social and spiritual crisis, I’d argue that McMaster emerges as an important artist with timely messages which we would be foolish to ignore.” — Jim
