Goff Gleadle shares his new book, The Big Head Man: The Life and Art of Lawrence Gleadle
Members of Southsea Green have a mutual admiration for the written word and beautiful art. One of our members, Goff Gleadle, recently dedicated much of his time to publishing the academic book, The Big Head Man: The Life and Art of Lawrence Gleadle, which has been extensively researched and written with sincere investment in the topic of lithographic art. Goff explores his personal experience with some of the major printers of the day, such as Stafford & Co. Through the discovery of these rare prints in a dormant shed, Goff shares comprehensive details about the creative process that would otherwise be unknown. The Big Head Man focuses on articulating insightful stories from an artist’s life and the preservation of art history, one page at a time. This book provides a rare and detailed look into the skilful, creative process of lithographic art; to help ensure that books look and feel as beautiful as the stories they tell.
