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.
