Drawings of Joyful Men - John Booth
“These Joyful Men drink in the same spots, circle the same streets, dance at the same discos. Not all of them are gay, but most are... In John Booth’s Joyful Men, there is the tacit exchange of men approving of one another, the solitary exchange of beautiful, shared freedoms.” - Paul Flynn
Drawings of Joyful Men is the first artist’s book by John Booth. Presented as a series of his distinctive drawings and portraits explored through the medium of Risograph printing. Each portrait is accompanied by a direct response John created, which pays homage to the various marks and patterns that characterise his work.
