Collected Words brings together for the first time in one volume the full range of Richard Hamilton's writings, mostly unobtainable now, together with reproductions not only of his paintings and prints, but also of other visual documents which have been relevant to his work as an artist. Hamilton's texts discuss his own paintings and prints, teaching, industrial design, technical developments in the entertainment industries in the 1050s and photography. Like his pictures, Hamilton's words are thoughtful, fastidious, informative- often humorous, usually brief and as much to the point as possible.
Through the masterful way in which he has woven together and designed his Collected Words, linked by connecting passages, Richard Hamilton has also created an absorbing artist's working autobiography.
