Last week Leonie presented her books at one of the excellent Artists' Books Now series organised by the British Library, this one centred around 'Place'. The event sold out very quickly, do keep an eye out for future ones in the series. Other artist speakers included Veronique Chance, Edmund Clark and Nancy Campbell , and the evening was hosted by Chris Taylor who also conducted a conversation with Clive Philpott - esteemed company indeed! Read curator of Contemporary British Publications Jerry Clark's introduction to the evening here.
The p’s & q’s press prints mainly intaglio and letterpress books, also small books using new technologies, always in search of more expressive combinations of image and text. Recent publications include collaborations, translations, anthologies and other collections. The press was established in 1999. The first book by the artist was The Monkeys’ Dream (1991).
Christine Tacq completed a BA at Kingston College of Art and was awarded a French government Fine Art Scholarship to spend the following year etching at the Atelier run by Johnny Friedlaender in Paris.
Christine continued printmaking at Bristol Artspace. A residency in Milton Keynes resulted in the publication of her first artists book.
Leonie Lachlan and occasional other artists also create books with p's & q's Press.
The p's & q's Press is based in Thame, Oxfordshire. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
