Artist book in show in Manchester

My small book 'H on a Train' is in an exhibition in Manchester called "Sitting Room" that starts this week.
Here is part of their explanation on their web site at:
  • Manchester Craft and Design Centre

  • "From May 25th the Manchester Craft and Design Centre will host an
    exciting and unusual exhibition dedicated to the art of sitting and
    reading. The setting is a carefully re-created Sitting room complete
    with comfortable armchairs, standard lamp, wallpaper, coffee table and
    gramophone, inviting visitors to the centre to peruse the unique
    display of artist’s books (that is to say, books that are made by
    Within this familiar domestic scene, emphasis is placed upon the
    engagement between the book and the reader. Visitors are encouraged to
    choose an artist’s book from the bookcase, make themselves at home in
    the sitting room and enjoy this rare opportunity to handle and interact
    with the limited edition artists-made book works."
