Description

A stunning collection of twelve definitive Robert Kime projects, ranging from Bloomsbury to the Bahamas, from the Irish countryside to la France profonde. Magnificent, specially-commissioned photography by Tessa Traeger is accompanied by a text which combines illuminating descriptions of the choices and challenges involved in each project with an account of how this most cultured of designers developed his eye. With a foreword by H.R.H The Prince of Wales, this is the definitive book on Robert Kime, one of the most respected and influential English designers of our time. 

The author

A former teacher, and longtime friend of Robert Kime, ALASTAIR LANGLANDS has worked closely with Robert and his friends and clients to offer a rich and nuanced picture of his achievements as a designer.

The Prince of Wales, eldest son of The Queen and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, was born at Buckingham Palace at 9.14pm on 14th November 1948.

The Prince, as Heir to The Throne, took on the traditional titles of The Duke of Cornwall under a charter of King Edward III in 1337; and, in the Scottish peerage, of Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.

Through the years, His Royal Highness developed a wide range of interests which are today reflected in The Prince's Charities, a group of not-for-profit organisations of which The Prince of Wales is Patron or President.

The group is the largest multi-cause charitable enterprise in the United Kingdom, raising over £100million annually. The organisations are active across a broad range of areas including education and young people, environmental sustainability, the built environment, responsible business and enterprise and international.

TESSA TRAEGER is one of the outstanding photographers of her generation and is widely acknowledged as having raised the subject of photographic, food still-life to the status of art. Trained at Guildford School of Photography and Fine Art, Tessa Traeger has worked at Rossetti Studios in Chelsea, London since the 1960s.

She is especially known for her still-life photographs taken on large format cameras many of which were published during her long association with British Vogue. She has exhibited regularly since 1978 and her work is represented in the National Portrait Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Bibliotheque National in Paris and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Her book, A Gardeners's Labyrinth, was written by Patrick Kinmonth and published by Edward Booth-Clibborn Editions in English, German and Dutch. Voices of the Vivarais which supported her solo exhibition at the Purdy Hicks Gallery in June 2010 was winner of the Photographic Book Prize in the British Book Design and Production Awards 2010.
