From her early work with such writers as Samuel Beckett, Eugene Ionesco, and John Osborne, to her time with Laurence Olivier at the National Theatre, Jocelyn Herbert (19172003) pioneered a simple yet atmospheric set design style that remains influential today. Britain's leading stage designer brought her innovative approach to the big screen on such films as Lindsay Anderson's Isadora. Published for the first time, Herbert's sketchbooks provide an intimate portrait of her life and work. Illustrated with production stills and accompanied by commentaries from the actors, directors, and writers involved, this book brings to life a golden age of British theater and film.
