Sanctuary : Britain's Artists and their Studios
Sanctuary gives a rare and privileged insight to the studios and inspiration of 120 of Britains greatest living artists working today, including Maggi Hambling.
Published by Thames & Hudson
In the words of Nicci Gerrard "...a beautifully illustrated and evocative account, by Maggi Hambling, of the story of the making of the iconic Aldeburgh Scallop, which is also the story of the sea and the people who live by it.."
Much has been said and written about Maggi Hambling's Scallop on Aldeburgh beach. This book, published in October 2010, is the artist's own story, told as it happened, with interpolations by some who constructed and supported (and some who didn't) her exhilarating and provocative sculpture to Benjamin Britten, one of Britain's most exalted composers.
"Maggi Hambling's Scallop is at once a monument to a great musician-composer and a celebration of the origins of his art...A robust and poetic work of art (that) stands at the thrilling edge where culture meets nature." Mel Gooding
The Aldeburgh Scallop sold out in hardback and is now available in paperback from Full Circle at £12.50. A limited edition of 100, numbered, signed and slip cased at £50 plus postage are still available. The standard edition can also be ordered from most book shops.
