|Reading latest issue of BAN on the train to BABE|
Reassemble. Sheena was the one holding the fort that day and I spent a good 20/30 mins just on their table trying to decide which books to buy, asking her questions and generally getting in the way of everyone else looking! Their books a generally all monoprinted, and as such are each completely unique, or as they put it "never the same book twice".
pages are completely covered in print and ink in layers and layers of overprinting so perhaps that will protect and seal the paper...
Nancy Campbell who I met a few years ago (in Bristol again) at a Book Arts conference at UWE. It was great to catch up with her briefly, but the books were calling to us both so we headed our separate ways. I went up to the next floor of the gallery to the largest spread of tables. So many lovely books, but not much money! While deep in my book hunting mode, with I am ashamed to say, hardly a glance at the artists behind each desk, I saw a book I was really intrigued by, checking the name of the artist I realised I knew her. Having never really met (email correspondence only) I hadn't recognised her; Jo Moore makes work under the imprint Peach Tree, Pear Tree Press and I know her because she wrote a piece of text for my Micro-Pages exhibition catalogue a few years ago. We chatted for a good while and I bought one of her books that has text printed on tracing paper (love that).
