LENvention seven

August 18, 2019

Last weekend Philippa attended the annual LENvention event organised by Angie Butler of ABPress. Now in its seventh year, this year we were fortunate to work at  Corsham Court – where we were joined by Tim Jollands who runs the Albion press as part of Bath Spa University campus.

Day one started with a walk around the grounds which were designed by Capability Brown and included a ha ha. The landscape was part of the introduction to this years’ theme of Relevance, with the aim to produce work from the reader’s perspective. For this task the group worked in pairs – with Philippa working with her previous collaborator from the first LENvention – Andrew Morrison. As well as responding to the given theme, other parameters included a wide landscape format using Kozo paper, and the limitation of printing only three sheets per pair on day one.

These constraints led to a considered and well balanced body of work that will be made into a scroll by the very talented Lucy May Schofield – Battenburg Press. Other participants were Hazel Grainger – HGmakes; Lucy Guenot; Jeff Rathermel.

one at a time please, there’s plenty of room…

Barrie’s on-going (and never-ending) project exploring a series of typographic responses to Dante’s Divine Comedy is currently on show at the ProjectSpacePlus gallery in the new Building at the Lincoln School of Art.

As you can see, there’s plenty of room to see the work in all its glory.


And enjoy the gallery space itself, which to be fair is quite dramatic.

And mostly empty.

We did set up some motion capture cameras – and managed to actually get proof of someone in the space looking at the work. True. No Photoshop. They really were there.


So. The show is on until the 7th of February. We’re a short walk from Lincoln Central train station. There’s even a cafe or two to choose from.

What more could you ask for?
