Pointed Leaf Press is proud to announce a monograph on English interior designer Sue Timney. To say that Timney's work is eclectic is as obvious as calling the sky blue: eclecticism is her signature. Perhaps it is her peripatetic childhood that has given her a global vision. Born in Libya, her father's military career took her to Germany and Newcastle, England and she cites influences and interests as diverse as the Japanese filmmaker Kurosawa, the beatniks, and African tribal art. In addition to 25 years worth of captivating photographs and some never before published drawings, textile designs, and personal artworks, Making Marks is a journey through a fascinating life - from a career launched in Japan, to the opening of the first Timney Fowler shop in London's hip Portobello area, and her successful career as an interior designer. An exhibition at the Fashion & Textile Museum in London is planned for November 2010. Contents: Chapter One: Palm Trees to Portobello Chapter Two: Radical Classical Chapter Three: Cut and Paste Chapter Four: Marksmanship Chapter Five: Wild Flowers Chapter Six: Regimental Ties Chapter Seven: Out of Africa AUTHOR: Sue Timney graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1979 and was awarded a Major Travelling Scholarship from the RCA to visit Japan. In 1980 she set up Timney Fowler with Grahame Fowler. In 2003 Sue took over sole ownership of Timney Fowler and licensed the TF Fabric and Wallpaper Collections which she continues to design for today. The Sue_Timney Design Practice was also set up at that time to continue work on independent interior commissions and design projects. SELLING POINTS: --A look inside the work of one of England's most amazing artists and designers --Foreword by Sir Paul Smith with quotes from long-time supporters and colleagues including actor Alan Rickman and fashion designer Betty Jackson ILLUSTRATIONS 200 colour illustrations
