New Arcadian Journal Illustrations

The New Arcadian Journal is a limited edition journal published annually by the New Arcadian Press. A unique, fine press hybrid combining art and scholarship, its aims are to investigate the cultural politics of historical landscapes by scrutinizing their architecture, gardens, monuments and sculpture. Editor and publisher, Patrick Eyres, has stamped his personality to create a feisty, visually distinctive and intellectually robust publication.

"Image and text confidently complement each other, from the bright, single-colour covers and contrasting flyleaves to the starkly black-and-white illustrations in a variety of styles that happily mix pointillist bird's-eye panoramas (by Chris Broughton); fluid, John Piperesque line drawings of structures, foliage and occasional interiors (by Catherine Aldred); rapid architectural doodles (by Mark Stewart); carefully observed statues (by the sculpture conservator, Andrew Naylor); and vignettes of (preferably salacious) art and architecture by Howard Eaglestone..."

"...These and other artworks proclaim NAJ's core qualities' eclectic, obsessive, bellicose, and refreshingly original in its determination to offer a modern and highly particular reading of old landscapes."
