David Inshaw: Between Fantasy and Reality is generously illustrated, drawing on the entire spectrum of the artist’s output.  It has been published as a special limited edition of just 250 signed and numbered copies.

Apple Tree and Moon. Signed, limited edition print included with each copy of the book.

Each book is case-bound in cloth and presented in a slip case, which also contains a fine art print, ‘Apple Tree and Moon’, based on David Inshaw’s 1998 painting of the same name.  Only 250 copies of this print will be produced, and each book and print will be signed and numbered by David.  The books will also be signed by Andrew Lambirth.

From the outset, David Inshaw has been deeply engaged with the whole project, making available his comprehensive collection of images and personal documents.  He has spent many hours with Andrew talking over his career, and as a result the text is not only informative, but also highly entertaining, as well as giving an intimate insight into David’s life and inspiration.

The book includes 128 colour reproductions of paintings and etchings, 17 reproductions of drawings and 29 Photographs. Undoubtedly this beautiful book will become highly prized; if you would like to order a copy, please click the link below and complete the online order form.
