UPDATE


Online Shopping: closed now, back soon

The safety of our visitors, friends and all who work with us at the RA is our highest priority. In line with the advice from Public Health England, the RA is closed temporarily; we have now taken the further decision to close our online shop in the short term, and to minimise non-essential activity.

We will be in touch once online shopping is available again, and are using the opportunity to improve the site and online experience we offer: we promise it will be better than ever! Meanwhile, if you have a query about an existing order, please contact us.

Whilst the front doors of the RA are closed, and for the time being the online shop, we will continue to offer creative inspiration to enjoy from home, and new ways of connecting. Visit us at Royal Academy of Arts, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Sign up to receive RA emails and find out once the online shop is open.

Thank you for your continued support. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the online shop and in person again soon.

Wishing you all the very best,
The Royal Academy of Arts Team

Product story

Published here for the first time, Herbert's sketchbooks provide an intimate picture of her life and work. Ideas for sets and costumes share pages with recipes and reminders: drafts of letters follow delicate line drawings of friends and family. Stephen Farthing considers the creative and personal uses to which Herbert put her sketchbooks, whilst Richard Eyre, a close friend and collaborator, discusses the woman and her vocation.

Illustrated with production shots from key projects and commentaries from the people involved, this book brings to life a golden age of British theatre through one of its pre-eminent figures.

Cloth hardback, 29.5 x 21cm, 122 pages, 75 illustrations.
