ArtWork looks at the artistic notetaking habits of a range of artists, filmmakers, writers, designers, and other creators through their journal pages and other visual materials that help germinate ideas and forms that go beyond the ordinary. Twenty-five creators including Wes Anderson, Louise Bourgeois, Will Self, Richard Serra, Blek le Rat, Tony Kushner, Merce Cunningham, and others are profiled through a generous selection of images and essays that give context to their work in general as well as to the project being illustrated. Materials featured encompass literal notebooks, a blizzard of Post-it notes, chalkboards, or the information-less marks recorded on the walls of a sculptor's studio.
