New Year well on its way.....

And I have not blogged since before Christmas...I've been far too busy trying to catch up with myself and finish work that I showed at Oxford Fine Press Fair so I could start the year anew.
Well , its 1st March and I am just about there - starting 2 important new books with James Simpson and playing with the idea of a 3rd that follows on from my Irish book Mharbna...
see below ( previous post) for images of Mharbna and my website for other books
which will hopefully be updated in due course

I am concentrating on working rather than exhibiting at book fairs this year , but I will be doing the 2nd Book Fair at Norwich, Turn the Page, at the beginning of May ( it was such an enjoyable experience last year )

and I seem to be booked for several talks....
first up will be about Peggy Angus at MMU Special Collections in Manchester in conjunction with the Manchester Museum of People's History Women in Print event
next friday march 7th
and scroll down to Women in Print  1920-1965

There will be an exhibition about Peggy Angus at Towner starting July 12th until september 21st
with a program of events , of which more anon. I will hopefully be doing another Peggy Angus walk from Charleston in the late summer - date to be confirmed.

Thursday march 20th I am giving a talk about Art and Archaeology with reference to my past work  for the University of Sussex Archaeology Society; starts at 7pm, venue ARTS A2, University of Sussex - free to all, just turn up, £2 with free wine reception afterwards
Lecture Series 2013-14

May sees the 750th anniversary of the Battle of Lewes and my printmaking group are producing an alphabet book to celebrate the month of festivities in town - this will be a packet of cards of the prints with an accompanying booklet and an exhibition of the finished concertina book somewhere in Lewes, watch this space
and see
website in process of being refashioned....
we will be showing at the May Fayre at Lewes Priory May 10th  and the weekend of the Festival in town 17/18th May
