Winner of the James Gate Percival International Prize for Literature, Études is a collection of watercolors and poetry by architect and artist John Marx. The book imagines Marx’s poetry as a visual expression laid out in a concrete poetry style to supplement his stunning series of watercolors. The sequences work as a diptych, each mirroring the form and movement of the opposing page.
