This significant volume brings together a diverse selection of works from William Kentridge and Vivienne Koorland to explore the formal and thematic links between their different practices. It focuses on the role of writing in their work, the relationship between drawing, painting and animation, their interest in film, their understanding of lines, alphabets and letters and the relationship between the iconic and the abstract, and maps and mapping. The book features eighty colour illustrations of a wide selection of artworks by each artist, including works on paper, maps and sketchbooks that have rarely been seen by the public before.
