Lines in the Ice

My latest book ITOQQIPPOQ - which was acquired by the British Library in the summer - will be shown as part of the British Library's exhibition Lines in the Ice: Seeking the Northwest Passage which runs from 14 November 2014 to 29 March 2015. Lines in the Ice examines the role of the Arctic regions in the making of the modern world. ITOQQIPPOQ will be in the company of early European maps of the Arctic, Inuit accounts of the coming of explorers and writings from the long search for the explorer Franklin. The curator has contributed a post to the BL's American Studies blog which gives an exciting glimpse of some of the other works that will be on show.

Manchester Artists Book Fair 2014

I will be showing my work at Manchester Artists Book Fair later this month, and I'm delighted to announce that I'm sharing my stand with visiting New York artist Roni Gross, who has been invited to give two printing masterclasses at Hot Bed Press in Salford (details here). 

We're looking forward to presenting some of our recent collaborative projects, including the first UK showing of Tikilluarit. The Book Fair is a great opportunity to talk to artists about their work, so do visit if you are in the area.
