About the year 1917 the Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi exhibited a marble carving in a bag with sleeves through which it could be felt, but not seen. He meant it, he said, as a 'revelation for the hands'.
This catalogue accompanied the 1987 exhibition at Leeds City Art Gallery, where visitors were invited to touch the twenty works on show. Selected for their tactile as well as their visual qualities, the collection was comprised almost entirely of works by living British artists.
With photography and texts on each work in the exhibition, and an introduction by Adam White.
