The Battle of Lewes and Turn the Page

My Printmaking Group have been working hard for the Battle of Lewes celebrations in May - this is our new book - an Alphabet Book of the Battle of Lewes consisting of 26 cards with the images and a booklet of explanatory text containing  lots of interesting and less well known details about the battle and its significance for our parliamentary history, all packaged as a nice little book about the size of a good sized paperback.

The original prints are made up into a large concertina book which is on display in the Lewes Town Hall.
The paperback book can be purchased there or from the Tom Paine Printing Press shop, 151 High Street
for a very reasonable sum ( £12 ).

Meanwhile I will be away missing some of the celebrations as I am doing the Turn the Page Artists Book Fair in Norwich the first friday and saturday of May. It's a lovely venue, was well attended by people from all over last year; this year it has an interesting program alongside the stands; and it's a beautiful city to explore. I was so inspired by it last year that will be showing some little books about Norfolk - The Man in the Moon and a litttle display about Nelson.
