Scissors Paper Stone

I am working on my newest book Hackney Leaves to be finished in time for Scissors Paper Stone Saturday 12 April 2008, 11am – 6pm, at the London Print Studio at 425 Harrow Road, London W10 4RE.

Here is what their web site says:
scissorspaperstone is a one-day artists' book and multiples fair showcasing a range of vibrant and innovative work by over 80 contemporary artists, book artists and small presses. scissorspaperstone will promote a rich and diverse range of artists’ books and multiples, from cloth-bound volumes, altered books, collated digital images and texts, to comics and experimental work using found texts and other ephemera. This exciting event offers an opportunity to buy and commission work directly from artists themselves. scissorspaperstone will be supported by a programme of workshops and demonstrations, and an exhibition at londonprintstudio exploring ‘the book’ as subject, form and inspiration.
