My Library – Personal Spaces

June 29, 2015

Today I want to introduce you to a very special book in my library, entitled: Personal spaces.

I’ve always had a soft spot for books, bookbinding and therefore the London Art Book Fair. I’ve seen it go through many metamorphoses and different locations. Back in 2005 I stumbled across the most gorgeous limited edition book that had my name all over it!

Personal spaces. The book is based on a compilation of answers received from family and friends in response to a questionnaire about their homes!

The original concept, Design & Production is by Philippa Wood. The book has been entirely hand set and therefore has a number of spelling errors. LOVE the hand stitching. It’s a limited edition of eight (hurray for me owning one) and is printed and published by The Beehive Press at the University of Lincoln.

Held in permanent collection: Artist’s Book archive, Winchester School of Art

I treasure it! Enjoy….

    A treasure indeed! This special little gem obviously belongs to your library. I really like the idea of creating a book from a questionnaire. Idea noted. Thanks!
