Overview

This exceptional book brings together a collection of more than 500 drawings dating from the 1960s by the renowned American film director, David Lynch. His artwork was first unveiled to the general public in March 2007 by the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain in Paris. Sketches, watercolors, or simple doodles, this vast collection--carefully preserved by David Lynch since his adolescence and regularly used by him as a source of inspiration--offers a unique glimpse into the artist's creative process. Using all types of media, from Post-it notes to napkins, the diverse and complementary nature of these drawings allows us to dive into David Lynch's universe and establish links between his artwork and his films. This exceptional book, both in terms of its format and the quality of reproduction of the works, is a co-publication between the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain and Steidl.
