To celebrate World Book Day, Off The Press Collective compiled a list of 100 classics that span multiple genres. From this selection 20 artists were approached to produce a brand new artwork inspired by their favourite book from the list to create a new series of art works that promote both literacy and the arts.
PAPERBACK will show the work of 20 artists and their response to iconic literature. Each design has been produced as a limited edition screen print by Off the Press Collective.
The works on show are by a mix of internationally exhibited fine artists, recent graduates, award-winning children’s book illustrators and graphic artists. Hand printed in Off The Press Collective’s rural studio, the art works are all unified in the iconic Penguin book colours of orange and grey.
On show we have:
Joel Millerchip, Natalie Blofield, Sam Foley, James Treadaway,
James Fenton, Rob Ramsden, Matt Robertson, Daisy Iverson,
Laurel Pettitt, Rachel Sodey, Jess Wilson, Anna Bird, Adam Bridgland,
Vicki Johnson, Toby Rampton, Jo Stafford, Michael Simpson,
Lucy Gough, Ben Challen, Lisa Zoylinos.
