Presents work by 54 letter-cutters based on themes of memory and loss, all finely carved by hand from variety of British stones and slates.
The Art of Remembering presents work by fifty-four contemporary British lettercutters based on themes of memory and loss. These works include arches, standing stones, sundials, boulders, benches, rough-hewn stones as well as headstones and tablets. All are finely lettered and carved by hand from a wide variety of British stones and slates with one or two examples in wood and cast iron.
Professor Ewan Clayton (University of Sunderland) provides a commentary that considers the relationship between memorials, people, and landscapes and reveals how the works shown stem from an ancient tradition, revived in the 1920s by the pioneering designer/craftsman, Eric Gill.
