The Year started well with a lovely catalogue through the post from the
Edmund S Muskie Archives and Special Collections Library at Bates College, Maine, USA.
They have an exhibition just started called BOUND TO ART, on until 25 March, showing beautiful books from the collection. My Garden of Earthly Delights, which I did with poet Judith Kazantzis, is included in the show and they sent me this nice teasing image - all credit to Will Ash at Bates Imaging and Computing Center for the photography, I always find this book a tricky one to make an image of.

Did I rashly say there were usually few distractions in january?
I seem to be very distracted sorting out applications for the year's Book and Art Fairs as well as trying to get work finished.
Peter and Altazimuth Press are taking part in the Works on Paper Fair next week - 3-6 february, at the new venue the Science Museum in South Kensington; I'm too busy to take a stand but will be interested to go along and see how it looks.
This thursday we are both giving a talk about our work to Brighton Illustrators Group.
BABE at the Arnolfini seems to be looming up too soon and we are considering doing Downstairs at the Olympia Book Fair again in June. Better get back to work.....
