There are few more complete examples of an artist's record of their own life than the intimately detailed and beautifully produced handmade books that Derek Jarman created throughout his career. Seen together they reveal the story of how he gathered, shaped and made concrete his ideas. Containing poetry, drawings, pressed flowers, photographs, excerpts from scripts and notes, the sketchbooks are part autobiography and part social history, layered and bursting with the energy and creativity not only of this groundbreaking film-maker and artist, but also of London in the 1970s and 80s. Wholly private during his lifetime, these precious books are an intimate pictorial record of the relationship between Jarman's personal and professional life, revealing the detailed planning and research, and creative and emotional engagement, behind each of his films.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Will delight Jarman's still-growing faithful, for whom he remains a unique and irreplaceable artist and provocateur' - Observer
'Brings Jarman and his art into fuller and more luminous perspective ... painstakingly edited and strikingly reproduced' - New Statesman
'Distils the many strands that made up Jarman's work - humour, torrential creativity, romanticism and the palpable political anger that burned fiercely during the dog days of Thatcherism' - Dazed & Confused
