Reproductions of my handwritten bookshelf divider cards - 82 categories printed on
coloured card, the titles shown above give you a good idea of the diversity of what's on
shelves. Over the last couple of years I have been slowly, gradually sorting out my
book collection, this series of cards is the result - and I've decided to share them with you!
Set of 82 A5 cards + Title card with a short essay, packaged in a screen
printed cardboard box, 23.5 x 16.2 x 2 cm, 2015, open edition.
Starting with a big stack of secondhand maps of the UK, I've repeatedly printed over them
- building up multiple layers of symbols and imagery. There's new towns - fed with fresh
food from the adjacent greenhouses, acres of forests and orchards, thousands of wind
turbines, I've built hundreds of museums, art galleries, bookshops, libraries and reopened
Post Offices but there's also surveillence cameras everywhere...
"everybody's mapping nowadays" is simultaneously idealistic and practical, decorative
and critical. Plus there's Alien visitations, Geodesic dome clusters, flower bombing,
symbol salad and logo clutter, buried treasure and easter eggs. Screenprinted by hand
with hand-drawn elements, laserprint and stickers, each copy is slightly different.

IT'S ALL OVER Multiple overprints and a nice random build up of imagery, these books are made from the sheets of scrap paper I use whilst printing cards
for test prints, cleaning screens and changing inks. Accumulated over several years.
