A Kurt Jackson Bestiary (2015)
For this book, Jackson has returned to zoology, the subject he studied at Oxford university, to create a beautiful bestiary: a body of work about fauna.
Jackson's contemporary bestiary extends the religious medieval tradition, looking closely at both everyday and lesser-known species of birds, insects, mammals and fish in order to stimulate readers' connections with and appreciation of the world around them.
Combining stunning imagery with commentaries and poems written by the artist, the book gives fascinating insights into the working life of one of the most popular and original artists working in Britain today, and makes a perfect companion to both Kurt Jackson (2012) and Kurt Jackson Sketchbooks (2012).
The book features a forward by Lord John Krebs and an introduction by Charlotte Mullins.
Signed copies of Kurt Jackson: A Cornish Bestiary is available from Kurt Jackson Editions and all good book stockists.
