This article is one of the 50 original copies of a “blank cover” edition of the book AWD XL Black. The inside pages of these 50 copies are exactly the same as the ones from a “standard” edition but the cover is made of drawing blank paper on which Ashley Wood will draw an original cover!
For 600 € (tax. incl.) you’ll be able to own a large format art book, numbered and signed and an original piece of the artist at the same time! It’s not cheap but rare enough!
Caurette Editions are sooooo happy to announce a partnership with Ashley Wood: yes, we are talking about a new art book! It is a large format (30 x 42 cm / 11 x 16,5 inches), hardcover volume, introducing for the first time a hundred drawings in their original size, including many never-seen-before pieces.
You’ll mostly find black and white pieces (although they were printed in colors to be as close to the original as possible) in Ashley Wood’s inimitable style, combining grace, sensuality and humor.
(…) I think the larger size provides te art with more presence and honesty. […] These drawings owe a heavy debt to Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt, as well as Japanese Shunga prints. I hope my drawings extol my love of the female form, just as theirs did.
If you already know Ashley’s books and works, you also know they’re collector pieces and hard to get your hands on! It’ll most likely be the same for this one as it is his first large format AND that the first 1000 copies will get an exclusive print, created especially for the occasion and signed by Ashley himself!
Take a look at his previous signed books on any browser and you should be convinced to pre-order his book asap! :)
Please note that this is a PRE-ORDER. The books will be shipped during 2021, but first, Ashley has to draw them, which might take a while (also, the books have to go back and forth to Australia first!)
