type tells tales

May 8, 2017

Many, many months ago we were approached by someone working for Steven Heller to see if we were interested in having some work published in a new book he was producing with Gail Anderson – needless to say we jumped at the chance – and last week the rather wonderful Type Tells Tales arrived on our desk. We feel honoured to be in such company as Werkman, Sam Winston, Paula Scher, Robert Massin, Marian Bantjes and many more type heroes and heroines.

fond farewells from uk to usa

May 1, 2017

Fond Farewells, the collaborative book project between Angie Butler and Philippa, is currently making its way to the US having been accepted for the Minnesota Centre for Book Arts upcoming exhibition – Reader’s Art: Control/Alt/Shift. The exhibition opens on 9 June-13 August at the prestigious MCBA, where by coincidence Angie will be speaking as part of the Book Art Biennial 2017 Symposium in July.

By comparison to Barrie’s recent blog post and the nine year saga of Utopian Tales, the collaborative project between Philippa and Angie Butler of ABPress has been a mere 18 months in the making, but nonetheless it is with a sigh of relief that their limited edition artists’ book has finally rolled off the production line. Fond Farewells is part of an on-going project called Endangered Species, this particular edition is a pair of books that examines lost language.

After almost a year of deliberation (or just avoidance?), Philippa has finally started to print on the handkerchiefs that will form two publications of her collaborative project with Angie Butler. Printing on a different substrate to normal is always challenging, but the cloth hankies were easier than imagined. The next challenge was a two colour registration, not as easy as it looks using a Farley proofing press!

world book night united artists

April 25, 2015

We were happy to once again be involved in UWE’s world book night contribution – organised by Sarah Bodman and staff from the Centre for Fine Print Research – this year’s task was to read the Stephen King novel The Shining and produce a miniature model based on an object from within the book. Philippa’s contribution was several stacks of old newspapers (from The Outlook cellar) and a wooden box of oranges (purchased by Hallorann).oranges2low

The miniature models have been turned into a short film (shot on WBN) called Shine On – see link below:

The models will be exhibited at the CFPR at UWE and also photographed by Paul Laidler for a book.

As blogged previously – Philippa’s participation in LENvention event last August resulted in a contribution to a short animation entitled Greetings ­– edited by Claire Baillie-Cloke the film was shown as part of the Print Produce Publish CBAA conference in Salt Lake City earlier this year. Also included was the ‘making of it’ film by Angie Butler (on page 2 of the Vimeo link below).

Happy days…
