During the pandemic, Kara Walker made a series of drawings in the style of a medieval "Book of Hours". The disturbing images show the ways and extent of human suffering. They are reminiscent of Hieronymus Bosch's macabre and nightmarish depictions of hell, except that in this case it is not about the afterlife, but about our earthly lives. From scenes of biblical and mythological origin to images of historical violence and others suggestive of more recent political unrest, Walker's enigmatic images traverse time and place. Buy ...

After two years of a global pandemic and people hiding behind masks, FUKT explores and celebrates the human face. One of the most inspiring drawing magazines, at least in our opinion, looks with its 20th issue at the art of portraiture in drawing. ⁠ ⁠ Creating portraits is as old as humanity, but what does it mean today, especially in the age of selfies and social media? Featuring drawings by 34 contemporary artists, FUKT explores the face in contemporary art. Inside the magazine you'll find a range of perspectives and themes, from face blindness to courtroom drawings and Lockdown portraits to face recognition - a selection of drawing positions that offer a unique look at the face.⁠ ⁠ One particularly beautiful detail is the cover. While there are 24 different faces, if you unpack the magazine from its foil, you also detach the facial expressions. What remains is a cover with an outline of a face and space for doodling, portrait drawing, simple or elaborate, everything is possible.⁠ Buy...

Enjoy a hint of colour and fluidity thanks to the collection of drawings by renowned designer Ronan Bouroullec!

Even though these are abstract, they give the impression of fabrics, folds, upholstered furniture or wavy glass. The balance of form and color within a few simple lines is astonishing and reassuring.⁠   Buy...

When Josef and Anni Albers traveled to Mexico they realised that they were in "a country for art like no other". They would make several trips to Mexico throughout the years exploring sites in Oaxaca and Yucatan. Fascinated by the geometrical shapes, they translated and interwove their found inspiration into their own works of abstract modernism. The book shows photographs made by the Albers of archaeological sites next to their painting, drawings and weaving and the correlations are staggering. Who would have thought that the basis for modernism was built on Mexican ruins.⁠ Buy...
