Two of Philippa’s collaborative projects with Tamar Maclellan – Meeting in the Middle and Sewing Secrets – have recently been accepted for an exhibition entitled All stitched up that opens in Tacoma, Washington, USA on 3 September. The call for entries asked for books where stitching was an integral part of the visual design. The exhibition is curated by Catherine Alice Michaelis and Jane A. Carlin, and will form part of a larger event including a symposium and lecture.

the magazine: march

June 14, 2019

The Caseroom Press has just published the third part of Alan Mason’s The Magazine – A Novel in Thirteen Parts.

The Magazine follows the form, and manner of a Victorian serial. This artist’s book/novel plays out in thirteen distinct, and distinctive instalments replete with cliff-hangers, poems, letters of complaint, improving articles, amendments, announcements, plagiarisms of no great account and tall tales that fall short.

The project is supported by the Edinburgh College of Art and copies are available from the author.

Philippa’s most recent collaboration with Tamar MacLellan is a small pair of concertina books that explore fragments of china that were unearthed whilst digging in the garden of a newly acquired house. Whilst much has been written on the subject of found pottery, there has been no substantiated conclusions as to why our gardens are littered with these (mainly) blue and white fragments. Having recovered in the region of 150 pieces from the garden, this book focuses on a small selection of a growing collection. The books are presented in an archive bag complete with record card and a fragment of china.

LENvention 6

September 4, 2018

gpcIn August Philippa attended the annual LENvention workshop organised by Angie Butler (ABPress). The two day event is an opportunity for a group of letterpress practitioners get together to develop a body of work within a 48 hour period. The event was hosted by Lucy Guenot at Gloucestershire Print Cooperative, a lovely print facility in Stroud.

This year the group were joined by Jeff Rathermel – executive director at Minnesota Center for Book Arts, as they developed a series of artists’ books that responded to the theme of bookness (or bookishness).

Philippa is pleased to be working with Angie Butler of ABPress again, on a collaborative project – entitled While you were sleeping. The project is the brainchild of Sara Burgess, who is hoping to get 100 presses from around the world to participate. Here she highlights the idea:

‘I propose a project to highlight those events that rock our every day. That makes me afraid for the future my five-year-old faces. That makes me ashamed of my privilege. That makes me cry when he can’t hear me. That depletes me, on behalf of our defenseless planet. That makes me fear the new treatment that women will face. That makes me say what the fuck, what the fuck, what the fuck. Just how does someone get away with this?
I call on the letterpress community to join me in print. To return to the truth. To print in facts, images, and lead type. Because in our type, we can convey beauty and messages,
and call attention to ugliness in ways that nobody else can.’

The brief was to select a newspaper headline from the past year, then set it and print it 100 times. Once they had selected their headline and made some joint design decisions, Angie worked independently on the first colour. On receipt of the prints, Philippa responded to the design/composition by overprinting.
