Description: Hardback artists' book: Length 230 mm, Width 160mm, Depth 20mm. The book is produced from found paper and printed material in various weights and colours. These are bound into a book of eighty pages. The white paper cover is handpainted and stamped with a photocopied belly band. The book is stapled and glued to black end papers. The book is an exciting mix of found printed pages bought together in a random way. Its concept is the recycling of unwanted and discarded paper and printed material which could be used as a sketchbook. The random cojoining of images also allows the viewer to appreciate the visual delights of the printed ephemera that we discard on a daily basis.
