revised edition a+e*i=o:u/

Philippa has recently been collaborating with Tamar MacLellan on a submission for the call for entries theme of Intersect by we love your books. The coincidental chance purchases (on the same day) of two charity shop embroidery books, one type based, the other pattern based, by the two artists led to a project that aimed to use a simple system to develop a single book.

Entitled Revised Edition, a typewriter symbol was allocated to each of the five vowels. The key enabled us to interpret the text through the development of a series of patterns typed on top of the pages from one of the existing books. This entire process meant that the book pages were sent back and forth several times, as each person typed their particular sections, at one point 6 pages were lost in the post(!)… so the book has 6 blank pages.


The final publication uses pattern sections as end-papers, and one of the existing covers was overprinted and trimmed enabling us to utilize it as new covers.
