This is 'Home Details by Christine Tacq' now showing, with other altered books, until the end of February 2011 in the 'Book This Space' exhibition at Buckinghamshire County Museum, Aylesbury. I chose the biggest discarded book on offer so as to start to make a model of the room I need to draw for my next book. Then, although I knew they would not be seen, I couldn't resist overprinting and changing the other rooms in the book originally called 'Home Details'. I was also inspired by the Giacometti exhibition at the Pompidou Centre a year or two ago and a couple of versions of 'The Palace at 4 a.m.' I love the title and the story behind it ..."We constructed a fantastical palace in the night - a very fragile palace of matches."
