Ewan Gibbs: AmericaGo to Full Site »

Ewan Gibbs : America is the first major publication devoted to the drawings of the acclaimed British artist. Initially, the book was planned as a small piece to compliment an exhibition at the Davidson College Van Every/Smith Galleries in late 2010. However, the “travelogue” design concept motivated the curator to expand the scale of the project to become a 102-page survey of Ewan Gibbs’ drawings of American cities. In order to effectively reproduce the finite detail within each of the meticulous drawings, the book was produced using a duotone process to simulate the values of the artist’s pencil and pen marks.
