Chicken/Egg: Before and After in Sequential Design
Graham Rawle returns for his second lecture as Falmouth School of Art’s Visiting Professor of Illustration.
Rawle is a writer and collage artist whose visual work incorporates illustration, design, photography and installation. He has produced regular series for The Observer, The Sunday Telegraph Magazine and The Times and among his published books are The Card, The Wonder Book of Fun, Lying Doggo, and Diary of an Amateur Photographer. His collaged novel Woman’s World, created entirely from fragments of found text clipped from vintage women’s magazines won wide critical acclaim, described by The Times as ‘a work of genius…the most wildly original novel produced in this country in the past decade.’ His reinterpretation of The Wizard of Oz won the Best Illustrated Trade Book Award as well as 2009 Book of the Year at the British Book Design Awards. The Card, was shortlisted for the 2013 Writers’ Guild Award for fiction. He is known to many for his long running ‘Lost Consonants’ strip, which first appeared in the Guardian in 1990. His latest book,Overland, will be published by Chatto & Windus in March 2018.
