Far From Boring - Tony Gwilliam
Far From Boring.
First edition. 471pp artist book [12 x 8 cm] in a handmade tin box. Colour illustrations throughout. California and Bali: Self-published, 2016.
Artist book by radical architect and thinker Tony Gwilliam in the form of a freefall autobiography of his life and work. The small but compact book addresses his early work at the Architectural Association in the 1960s and his part in Archigram, through to his time with Buckminster Fuller and then on to cover his latest work in Bali with an ecological tourist and local community housing project. This is a scrapbook of thoughts and ideas and drawings all housed in a handmade tin box from Bali. The work also contains loose inserts, stamps, stickers etc dropped in by the artist. A fascinating item full of ideas.
