Pugin’s Contrasts Rotated

James Langdon
Bedford Press/AA Publications
Artists' Books
14.8 × 21 × 0.2 cm

This publication makes a corrective gesture. AWN Pugin’s 1836 book Contrasts presented a comparative analysis of what Pugin considered the glorious buildings of the middle ages and the detestable architecture of his own time. The etchings that illustrated this work originally appeared awkwardly paired on single pages. Here photocopies of 15 pairings from Contrasts are rotated 90 degrees and reproduced on facing pages, as part of an ongoing enquiry by the author into the book as an active site of display.
