A new book dedicated to Scottish painter Marj Bond

Marj Bond is best known for her striking paintings of deities and Inca warriors and her use of handmade paper.

The book reviews her 50-year career with over 100 colour illustrations, many from private and public collections, and works never seen before. It traces her fascinating artistic journey, from Glasgow School of Art to the present day, through the exotic destinations that have fired her imagination; India, Mexico, Morocco and Cuba.

Informed by hours of interviews with Bond, and unrestricted access to her archives and studio, this book paints a striking picture of the artist. With a foreword by Clare Henry, former Financial Times and Glasgow Herald critic, and arts promoter Richard Demarco, it highlights the part Marj Bond played in supporting contemporary Scottish art through the running of her own gallery in Perth during the 1980s.

Marj Bond has long been a member of prominent arts organisations such as the RSW, Paisley Art Institute, Royal Glasgow Institute and Society of Scottish Artist.
