Posted/Unposted: The Lost Call
‘POSTED/UNPOSTED: British Isles’ (2019-2020) contains a new iteration of the ‘POSTED/UNPOSTED’ (2016-2017) project curated by Imi Maufe (NOR) and Lina Nordenström (SE) who worked with 25 invited artists, printmakers and visual poets from the Nordic Countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden).
For the British Isles version, Imi Maufe invited Angie Butler (UK) to co-curate the exhibition. I was invited with 23 other creative practitioners who use letterpress in the UK/EIRE to contribute to this publishing project. The resulting work spans fifty years of letterpress publishing expertise, illuminating the wealth of innovative letterpress printing that takes place across these countries today.
‘The Lost Call' is designed as an imagined 10th pamphlet of H N Werkman's
The Next Call' - inspired by, and in memory of, the artist. Both pamphlet and envelope were produced using a variety of techniques, most as utilised by Werkman himself.
Messy Women: Pot Luck No. 1
Messy Women is a collaboration with Cathey Webb and Zelda Velika to make series of Pot-luck books inspired by the 1937 collaboration of Edna Beilenson, Evelyn Harter and Beatrice Warde to make books by and for women, on the subject of women in print.
A video of the making of the first Pot-luck book is available via the BABE 2021 Lost Weekend YouTube channel from 16th April 2021.
