The second of my blog shorts, that celebrate the artistic beauty of the paperback cover, is one of a series of Penguin Modern Poets. This volume 2 represents work by three contemporary poets - Amis, Moraes and Porter, first published in 1962.
For Penguin Germano Facetti commissioned a series of photograms by Peter Barrett, Roger Mayne and Alan Spain between 1962 and 1965.
New work, in the form of large screen printed birds and trees, have been printed at Spike Island, Bristol. They will be part of my one-man show at the Centrespace Gallery, Bristol this coming September and are available now as limited edition of twenty.
The main body of work is a series of three large format screen prints entitled 'Flight'. All have been printed using individual Lascaux metallic inks onto Fabriano Artistico paper and measure 66cm by 86cm.
