Allen Jones


First edition of “Projects”, the fantastic 1971 artist book by British Pop artist Allen Jones.

Designed and typeset by Jones, in collaboration with Roy Walker and Anthony Matthews, this lavish hardcover book is heavily illustrated throughout (primarily in vivid colour) with photographs, drawings, video excerpts and montages by Jones. Five of Allen Jones’ costume/set design/art direction projects are covered in this book, including his work for opera (Mozart’s “The Abduction from the Seraglio”), film (“The Playroom” and “A Clockwork Orange”), stage (two sequences from “Oh Calcutta!”) and television (“Männer Wir Kommen”). “The text has been researched and transcribed from taped interviews with Allen Jones by Ruth Messina and Bonne Boston.”

Allen Jones (b. 1 September 1937) is a British pop artist, best known for his sculptures, paintings, drawings, and work in set and costume design for film and theatre.

Jones’ exhibitions of erotic sculptures, such as the set Chair, Table and Hat Stand (1969), are studies in forniphilia, which turn women into items of human furniture. Much of his work draws on the imagery of rubber fetishism and BDSM.  The sculptures in the Korova Milk Bar from the 1971 film A Clockwork Orange were based on works by Jones after he turned down the request by Stanley Kubrick to design the set for no payment. Jones designed Barbet Schroeder’s 1976 film Maîtresse.
