The House that Jack Built is a magnificent and highly informative biography of Jack Lugg, influential South African artist and educator.

This substantial and entertaining art book is unique in many ways. It is a touching tribute to a man who made an enormous impact on many lives. It is a valuable historical record of seven decades of exceptional art production by a seminal South African artist in a changing international landscape.

It is an inspiring record of the versatile career of an artist and educator. Above all, it is the fascinating life story of a man with formidable talent, extraordinary tenacity, creativity, and captivating wit.
