This hard-backed A4 book is now out of print. It is a fully illustrated, definitive biography and record of the life and work of Henri Gaudier-Brzeska. 141 pages with over 125 black and white photographs of Gaudier’s work.

That Gaudier’s achievement has been unrecognised for so long by the public at large is perhaps, as Ezra pound wrote in his monograph on Gaudier, because we are ‘terrified of a man with an unusual faculty, of a man burning to speak’.
