John Carter RA has made some of the most beautiful and lucid artworks of the last 50 years. This lavishly illustrated book is the first comprehensive survey of Carter's work and the reliefs for which he is best known are shown together with examples of his drawings, prints and public sculpture. Chris Yetton traces the artist's development, from his early interest in the forms of architecture and the imagery of commercial graphic art to his recent experiments with geometry, assessing Carter's singular contribution to the post-war flowering of British abstraction. 160 pages, approx 120 illustrations, 30 x 25 cm
