Outsider Art by Roger Cardinal published 1972 Studio Vista unclipped d/j illustrated in colour and b&w.

£35.00

Product description

Publisher: Studio Vista, London, 1972. First edition. Hardback with unclipped dustjacket, 192 pages. Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. Cover, in red boards with gilt titling, is in good, clean condition with slight bump to foot of spine. Internally the book is in good, tight and clean condition with no tears, creases or markings. Neat pen inscription to ffep. Some faint foxing spots to endpapers and light tanning to page edges. The colour and b&w illustrations are all clean and bright. The pictorial dustjacket, which is not price clipped, is in generally good condition with light shelfwear to edges, a small tear to top front edge and another to top back edge. Front flap has a vertical crease and rear flap has a small crease across bottom corner. Overall, a good copy of this fascinating and well illustrated book. 'The characteristic property of an inventive art' writes Dubuffet 'is that it bears no resemblance to art as it is generally recognised and in consequence ... does not seem like art at all'. In this book, Roger Cardinal examines perhaps the only art which can truly be described as inventive, the art engendered outside the influence of society: by those certified insane; by those who claim inspiration from the spirit world; and by the innocent , upon whom the stamp of stereotyped culture has failed to make an impression.
