on the road again

Barrie had the pleasure of travelling up to Newcastle on Friday to talk to Graphic Design and Illustration students at the Northumbria University.

He’d been invited up by the extremely talented Sara Ogilvie, and spoke about The Caseroom Press, Typewriter Art and also took a few carrier bags full of Artists’ books for the students to look at (Philippa’s fabric printed Delia Taught Me To Cook was a particular favourite).

There was even a question about his Typographic Dante (he’d not mentioned it in the talk, but one of the students had really done their research). If anyone’s particularly interested in that, there’s an article about it here: Academia.

It was lovely to see Sara again – she’s also one of the illustrators for Utopian Tales – and he was given a grand tour of their studios, wonderful print room and small, but beautifully formed, letterpress studio.

A really delightful day.

So why the rather forlorn picture of his bags on the platform at Newark?

He forgot to take any photos when he was there.

    I see the seed of a new project – bags on platforms. Only bags – no people.
