Synopsis:

Nathalie Du Pasquier started drawing as soon as she met her husband George Sowden in 1979 in Milan. She was introduced to the world of design and shortly after, in 1981, became a founding member of the iconic postmodern design movement Memphis. From 1981 to 1987 she didn't stop drawing. Every day she would draw a whole new modern world, from very small items like jewelry to entire cities. This world only existed in her head but would eventually be developed into real pieces for the Memphis exhibitions.
 
This unique book is the first and definitive compilation of all the unpublished drawings from those years, which had been sitting in the drawers of Nathalie's studio for over 30 years. Organized by the smallest objects to the biggest and divided into chapters, each with a text by Nathalie, it has been carefully edited and designed by Apartamento magazine's co-founder Omar Sosa together with Nathalie Du Pasquier.
 
Don’t Take These Drawings Seriously is an excellent reference for future generations and a welcome document of an important period in modern design. 

About the Author: Nathalie Du Pasquier was born in Bordeaux (France) in 1957, she has lived in Milan since 1979. Until 1986 she worked as a designer and was a founder member of the Italian design group Memphis. She designed numerous "decorated surfaces": textiles, carpets, plastic laminates as well as some furniture and objects. In 1987 painting became her main activity. Apart from all the exhibitions with the Memphis group, she has been showing her work mainly in Hong Kong from 1989 until 2009 with Le Cadre Gallery, in Ireland with Rubicon Gallery and Fenderesky and in Italy in various places. She paints still lifes with objects and in the last years has been building abstract compositions to be represented. In 2014 she has launched a collection of clothes for American Apparel and a collection of objects and fabrics for Wrong for HAY.

Omar Sosa (1983) is a Barcelona based Art Director, Graphic Designer and Publisher. In 2008, after a period of working at Folch Studio in Barcelona as a Business Partner, Omar founded the magazine Apartamento together with his friend Nacho Alegre. Apartamento is now distributed in 45 countries, "[hitting] newsstands in China, Lebanon and Kenya, as well as recording big sales in Berlin, London and New York" (The Guardian, UK. 06/10/12). Two years later he went on to win the prestigious Yellow Pencil Award and Apartamento was awarded the Best Entire Magazine of 2010 by the D&AD association (Design & Art Direction Association, UK). He has worked as the Art Director for a wide range of international clients: Flos, Louis Vuitton Group, Rizzoli International, Carolina Herrera NY, DDG Partners, Corriere Della Sera, Patricia Urquiola, Ricardo Bofill Architecture, among others. His work spans from designing books and magazines to creating brand identities, designing exhibitions and generating successful liaisons among creative professionals.
