Phyllida Barlow: Quarry Book

This is Phyllida Barlow: quarry, a book that I have been designing in collaboartion with the artist and the team at Jupiter Artland. Commissioned by Nicky and Robert Wilson for the tenth anniversary of Jupiter Artland, quarry brings together three monumental sculptural objects made from concrete and steel, each with Barlow’s signature textural surfaces, and located within the grounds of Jupiter Artland, just outside Edinburgh. The book documents the gestation of quarry and includes texts by the artist and Jupiter Artland director, Nicky Wilson, a contextualising essay by Jo Applin, and photographs by Allan Pollok-Morris, Anna Kunst, and Thierry Bal. The book also features Phyllida Barlow’s original working drawings for quarry.

The book has 80 pages and is printed on Munken Lynx Smooth 150gsm; the cover is quarter bound with a foil-blocked spine of blue Brillianta cloth with black head and tail bands with endpapers of Colorplan Real Grey. The book was printed by Gomer Press in Llandysul, Wales.

quarry is the first publication in Jupiter Arland’s Artist Commission series, along with Self-Fulfilling-Ego by Marco Giordano. The book can be purchased from the Jupiter Artland website.
