Amazing to see the original May '68 posters in Paris last week (whose creation was described in paperback pages I rescued for my altered book - see below). We did ask if these were the original screen prints. Yes they were! Some were donated to the Ecole des Beaux Arts archives from ones the police had confiscated. So after 50 years some things do change.. Printmakers might notice that maybe some don't.
Here is the 'hatbox' I made for 'A Storm of Stars' with a slipcase and a folder by The Fine Book Bindery and another image of the book itself. If you want to see the real thing I am working on the last stages, and will be sharing the studio with Heather Hunter from 19th to the 28th May (including the bank holiday but closed on Thursday). We will be demonstrating various aspects of making books on weekday afternoons as part of Oxfordshire Artworks, www.artweeks.org - we would love to see you anytime between 11am and 6pm.
