Heart & Soul: My Life and Drawings

£79.99

Product description

Heart & Soul is an intimate and sometimes heart-wrenching story of an artist who against the odds outsold his peers. Gary Hodges' personal account gently builds a deeper understanding of his life and his art. Through tragedy and joy, the artist's ability to reach into the soul of his subjects becomes clearer, as his personal portrait emerges. Included in the 272 pages: 
All 129 published prints illustrated in the portfolio section. 
79 unpublished drawings and sketches. 
336 full colour and B/W photographs scattered throughout the book, including ones from his childhood and many from his adventures. 
His intensely personal autobiography told over 20 chapters... find out what really makes him tick. 
Foreword by Virginia McKenna OBE. 
Introduction by Rula Lenska. 
Beautifully designed, personally signed, this limited edition book, number 282/1000, is a testament to the artist now in his 60th year, celebrating his drawings, his life and the wildlife he loves with a passion. The portfolio section includes all his 129 published drawings to date. The book also includes 336 photographs of his life and his many research trips.

This volume is in 'as new' condition with the exception of very minor corner bumps and some minor scuffing around the edges on the rear dust cover: No rips or tears or nefarious creases. As well as being numbered, 282/1000, and signed in pencil by the artist on the inside title sheet, it also has a personalised message from the artist as follows: "Dear Ben, many thanks for (not) interviewing me for Attitude - my favourite mag! Sorry about the lack of naughty bits here". This is accompanied by a second signature and an x (kiss).
