British sculptor Brian Griffiths (born 1968) has been called a “junk shop Viking.” Working largely with recycled materials, the artist often starts his process at secondhand markets. The resultant sculptures suggest adventure and play: cardboard-box spaceships, tabletop caravans and clothes bureau boats with hand-stitched sails. This volume is the first fully illustrated monograph on his work.
