JOCELYN HERBERT SKETCHBOOK
During an illustrious career, as Britian's leading stage-designer, Jocelyn Herbert pioneered a style of simple but atmospheric set design and her influence continues to be felt in British theatre.
Published here for the first time, Herbert's sketchbooks provide an intimate picture of her life and work. Ideas for sets and costumes share pages with recipes and reminders: drafts of letters follow delicate line drawings of friends and family. Stephen Farthing considers the creative and personal uses to which Herbert put her sketchbooks, whilst Richard Eyre, a close friend and collaborator, discusses the woman and her vocation. Illustrated with production shots from key projects and commentaries from the people involved, this book brings to life a golden age of British theatre through one of its pre-eminent figures.
