Patterns in the Landscape: The Notebooks of Philip Hughes
The story of Philip’s use of notebooks began in Vienna in 1988, when he chanced upon a notebook in a stationery shop. He was allured by the rough texture of the paper, the books shape and the whole idea of working notebook – something he had not done before. This book is testimony to that first notebook, the body of work that came from it, and the many notebooks he has filled since then.
With a foreword by Glenn Murcutt and over 75 colour illustrations, the book covers vast landscapes that he has encountered on his travels, from the Luberon in France, the Bungle Bungles in Australia to the USA and Iceland.
