Background: Michael Craig-Martin comments: "For these drawings there are no 'originals' in the usual sense. In the early days I drew each object in pencil on paper and traced it in fine tape on acetate. I then destroyed the pencil drawings. Since the mid-’90s I have drawn directly on a computer using the mouse as pencil.

No hard copy exists unless I print or paint one. In the beginning I intended my drawings to look as styleless as possible, without any hint of my personal intervention, but after making hundreds over the years it became clear that they did have a style, which is now recognisable as my style.

In a sense this can be seen not as a book of reproductions, but of originals."
