David Hicks: A Life of Design
By Ashley Hicks
Rizzoli International Publications
Designer: David Hicks
Director: Stanley Kubrick
Written by his son Ashley Hicks, “David Hicks: a life of design” is a richly-illustrated survey of the designer’s career. Ashley Hicks has had unprecedented access to Hicks’ archives, personal photos, journals, and scrapbooks, and he has produced a monograph that leaves the reader with an understanding of the atmospheric, regal oases that Hicks spent his life working to create.
David Hicks was the designer behind the bold patterned hexagonal patterned carpet in Kubrick’s The Shining.
