This is Magritte, by Patricia Allmer and Iker Spozio


Author Patricia Allmer and illustrator Iker Spozio have worked together on a new book celebrating the work of surrealist artist Rene Magritte.

The book will be released by Laurence King Publishing this month, and is part of the publisher’s “This is…” series looking at art history in a “highly visual manner”. This is Magritte includes more than 20 specially-commissioned illustrations by Spozio.

It also explores the life of the artist, and looks at the influence of popular culture, such as music, fashion and cinema, on his work.

This is Magritte will be available to buy for £9.95 from 12 August via Laurence King Publishing’s website.
