The exhibited works of Kurt Jackson (b.1961) do not necessarily reveal his day-to-day working practice.

Behind his finished canvases are hundreds of sketchbooks borne out of his continual routine of making drawings, marks, notes, poems and scribbles.

This book, newly available in paperback, examines the importance of the sketchbook to Jackson. For Jackson, sketchbooks are vital to the development and completion of his paintings.

Often sketching while a painting evolves, the artist values each medium equally - the pages of his sketchbooks reveal how the hastily executed images can help him to work out what he wants to achieve on canvas, or simply capture a spontaneous image when there is not enough time to paint or draw properly.

Illustrating mundane daily events and happenings as well as key moments, journeys and the overlapping ongoing project work, Jackson's sketchbooks are key to understanding his inspirations as an artist. Drawing on a selection of 20 sketchbooks, of differing sizes and a variety of media, this fascinating publication provides a rare insight in to the mind of a highly creative and original artist.
