Books and Boxes by Mark Pawson

For the December 2001 exhibition wallpaper? Mark Pawson wallpapered the
interior of the Tatty Devine shop with unusual and unlikely materials in a why-dont-you
try-this-at-home approach to interior decoration. The limited edition wallpaper? catalogue
has a unique cover made up of 12 mini books which open at different angles and contains
samples of all the materials used for wallpaper? - post-it notes, pizza menus, postcards,
gallery floor-plans, braille hymnbooks, plug wiring diagrams and more together with texts,
photos of the completed installation and original diagrams & sketches.

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.

1995 - 2000 I had a stack of old catalogs from the legendary New York artists book store,
which feature 5 of my books on page 28! Instead of throwing them out I decided to make
them my own by going through them and adding notes, saying hello to friends,
commenting on books I've got, drawing beards on people, and whatever else came to
mind, generally having fun annotating and annecdoting them with blue and
bright pink ink, plus a bit of rubberstamping in white ink!
Edition of 16 copies, each is unique. 21x14cm 80pgs
