Synopsis

Edward Gordon Craig (1872-1966) was the most brilliant and influential stage designer this century. Always a controversial figure, he set out to revolutionise the theatre by creating a new art, the art of the theatre. Almost single-handed he formulated the principles on which a modern approach to stage design would be based. In his writings and engravings he transformed stage scenery from painted back-cloth into an abstract three-dimensional world of form and light. Craig's reputation as a designer is firmly established; his brilliance as a writer is only beginning to be recognised. Index to the Story of My Days shows him at his most self-revealing. As the original edition announced, 'Anything less like the conventional book of memoirs it would be difficult to imagine'. This 1981 reissue includes a specially written introductory essay by Peter Holland assessing the importance of Craig's career in the history of stage design.
