Going global

Somewhat to my bemusement I have some books in different international exhibitions, all at the same time.

I have 3 books in the artists' book exhibition Correspondence which is touring Poland for 2 years.  The exhibition has just reached Lodz and the organisers have sent us this:

The Jozef Pilsudski Regional and Municipal Public Library in Lodz + Polish Book Art Museum
invite you to the 9th International Book Art Festival CORRESPONDENCEpresenting works
of 84 artists from Europe, USA and Asia.


Earlier in the year I was asked to make a book for a French Exchange project involving student book artists from the University of the West of England, Bristol and our counterparts at the Universite Jean Monnet, Saint-Etienne.  Pictures of the finished book still to come, but the exhibition poster and invitation are shown below.

I recently received a catalogue for an exhibition including one of my books that has recently been on show in Armenia.  It was part of the celebrations to mark Yerevan - UNESCO's City of the Book 2012 and the 500th anniversary of the first printed book in Armenian.  The exhibition has now returned to the UK and will soon be on show at the University of Northampton, where the books will be kept in the archive. Here is the poster:
