From Our Editors

Peter Greenaway is one of the most distinctive -- and provocative -- personalities to emerge in European cinema in the last two decades. A painter by training, he has made his reputation as an unconventional film-maker possessed of a strong visual style and an obsessive attention to detail. This extensively illustrated book looks at the full range of Greenaway's artistic and cinematic productions, from The Draughtsman's Contract to The Baby of Macon and The Pillow Book, and portrays him as a British artist immersed in his country's history and culture, and as a unique and controversial voice in world cinema and art
