Anomie Publishing’s Autumn 2022 brochure is now available to view online and to download, featuring recent and forthcoming titles along with information about our backlist publications. On the cover this season is Ribbons, wrappers, designs (2022), from the ‘make believe’ paintings – a major new body of work by Anna Freeman Bentley inspired by sets from The Colour Room (2021), a film that tells the story of the early career of the celebrated British ceramicist Clarice Cliff (1899–1972). The publication coincides with the second solo show by Anna Freeman Bentley at Frestonian Gallery, by whom she is represented. The exhibition, also titled make believe, is divided between two sites: The Armory Show 2022, New York, and Frestonian Gallery, London, in autumn 2022.
Also featured is Glasgow-based painter Lorna Robertson’s publication thoughts, meals, days, which was produced to coincide with an exhibition of Robertson’s work at Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh, in summer 2022. Lorna Robertson’s colourful paintings, often made with a combination of oil paint and collage, have a distinctly nostalgic tone. Shimmering female forms with swinging skirts from the 1950s or bonneted bathers from the 1920s jostle with richly described interiors and crowded tabletops. Hints and glimpses of tangible forms – a fashion model, for example, or a vase – appear and then fragment into patterns and explosions of colour.
Anomie’s recent titles David Batchelor – Concretos and Ian McKeever – The Henge Paintings are now available and shipping from both the UK and USA distribution warehouses.
Anomie is delighted to announce that its title from spring this year Manolo Valdés – In Glass has been shortlisted for the British Book Design & Production Awards 2022 in the category of art and architecture monographs.
