Since 2000 Book Project International has been run by Vis a Vis who have built up a collection of artist publications that have regularly been exhibited in libraries. A selection of several of these many works from many countries will be presented here. They will become catalysts for other art forms; dance, drama, installation to be captured in the drawings of three artists.

Book project International also gives space to young creators by putting in the spotlight the works of young art students Camille Renaut from Haut Ecole des Arts de Rhin and Leonie Lachlan graduate of Newcastle University and the Royal Drawing School. Their recent works will be presented.

I have been hiding here as the garden tries to get through the window. The cutting mat is new. Books are being assembled: 'Recovered' has been recovered with added papers in the beautiful colours of copied disintegrating newspaper. Other things don't change. The newspaper 'feuilleton' 'The Garments of Vengeance' that drove my research for the book, still seem to me, designed to spread fear and alarm. 

'From the Forest' with text by Ben Jonson '...The blushing apricot and wooly peach Hang on thy walls that every child may reach...' is the first book I edition as part laser print, part collagraph.

Finally here is a link about new acquisition 'Printess & the p', just sent to me from the British Library
