The beautifully designed, fully illustrated catalog for the Machines à dessiner (Drawing Machines) exhibition at the Musée des Arts et Métiers (Museum of Arts and Crafts). Full of new and never-before-published artwork by Schuiten and exquisite photographs of antique machines in the archives of the Musée des Arts et Métiers.

From the publisher:

Drawing in all its forms, by François Schuiten and Benoît Peeters!

Drawing Machines communicates the visions of Schuiten and Peeters with a set of machines chosen from the reserves of the Musée des Arts et Métiers. It is a question of building bridges between the fantastic universe of the Dark Cities and the world of techniques, but even more of staging the magic of drawing yesterday, today and tomorrow. Whatever the evolution of tools, drawing is an act of the future; It is a way of looking at the world to better understand it.

The book proposes a long interview with François Schuiten on the practice of drawing, many unpublished images as well as rare documents from the CNAM reserves.

La description de l'éditeur:

Le dessin dans tous ses états, par François Schuiten et Benoît Peeters!

Machines à dessiner fait dialoguer les visions de Schuiten et Peeters avec un ensemble de machines choisies dans les réserves du Musée des Arts et Métiers. Il s'agit de lancer des ponts entre l'univers fantastique des Cités obscures et le monde des techniques, mais plus encore de mettre en scène la magie du dessin, hier, aujourd'hui et demain. Quelle que soit l'évolution des outils, le dessine est un acte d'avenir; c'est une manière de regarder le monde pour mieux le comprendre.

Le livre propose un long entretien avec François Schuiten sur la pratique du dessin, de nombreuses images inédites ainsi que des documents rares issus des réserves du CNAM.
