We have been very fortunate to purchase a collection of art and architecture books belonging to the biographer of Sir Eduardo Paolozzi -one of the founders of the Independent Group.
Some never opened
Like new condition.

As Found: The Discovery of the Ordinary ; [British Architecture and Art of the 1950s ; Parallel of Life and Art, New Brutalism, Independent Group, Free Cinema, Angry Young Men, Kitchen Sink]
British art and architecture of the 1950s are little known but extraordinarily topical today.
Of particular relevance are the activities of the Independent Group, a loosely structured organization whose members included artists Richard Hamilton,
Eduardo Paolozzi, and Magda Cordell, photographer Nigel Henderson, critics Reyner Banham and Lawrence Alloway, and architects Alison and Peter Smithson,
James Stirling, and Colin St. John Wilson, who sought the essence of the everyday through a sensitivity to the hardships and charm of life in the raw.
As Found encounters the transdisciplinary relationship between the constructed environment as it is visually perceived and verbally expressed.
