* The first major publication on the work of this well-known designer, who was one of the key creative instigators of the Creative Salvage movement

* Mark Brazier-Jones' work is to be featured in the landmark British Design 1946-2012 exhibition to be held at the Victoria & Albert Museum in 2012

Mark Brazier-Jones is a unique force in the world of design, whose wonderfully eccentric works literally defined the term 'Creative Salvage' in the mid-1980s. Today, his work is increasingly recognised as forging a new and more artistically compelling way forward. As a veritable 'designer-laureate of metal', his metalwork possesses a poetic sensibility and an engaging quirkiness that is suffused with symbolic meaning rarely found in contemporary design.

A sumptuously illustrated tome, Mark Brazier-Jones assesses his approach to design and making, and is an important catalogue raisonné of his work. By playfully subverting our notions of art, craft and design Brazier-Jones' surprisingly ecletic work offers an alternative definition of modern design - one that is about quality of craftsmanship and individuality of expression that is intended to last generations.

Internationally recognized for his unique residential furniture, his enthusiastic and pioneering embrace of new technology and his challenging use of new materials, this is a comprehensive collection and critical analysis of Paul Evans' work. This book gives a fascinating insight into his innovative designs and has been published to accompany an exhibition of his work at Michener Art Museum, Doylestown, PA (USA) from the 1st March to 1st June, 2014 and Cranbrook Art Museum, Bloomfield Hills, MI (USA) from the 21st June to 12th October, 2014

Paul Evans: Crossing Boundaries and Crafting Modernism focuses on an American artist who has attracted a worldwide core of collectors and whose approach to furniture-making defied traditional notions of craftsmanship. Creating furniture as sculpture, defined by abstract composition, designer-craftsman Paul Evans (1931-1987) consistently pushed boundaries with his innovative approaches to metal work and furniture-making, his designs revealing the fascinating juxtaposition of sculpture and design.
