Tom Phillips is a multi-talented artist whose central passion is language and whose genius lies in his ability to generate images that, while concerned with the structure of ideas, also convey a rich coherence of decoration, eloquence and sensuality. These concerns have led him into opera, ballet and film-making; he is also an accomplished composer and poet, and his achievements in the production of books and prints are renowned worldwide.

Published to accompany a retrospective exhibition organised by the Royal Academy, Tom Phillips: Works and Texts is a discriminating survey of over twenty years of his work, including pages from Dante’s Inferno (Thames and Hudson, 1985) and A Humument.

Illustrated in colour throughout, this is a tribute to an artist whose work remains as fresh and challenging as when it was first produced.
