Book in a Day 2012


On Tuesday 17th April 2012 I made a book in a day called The Box. This artist book was created from scratch and a limited edition of 50 was printed and compiled in collaboration with artist Nick Davies and prtscrpress (risograph printing).

Why Tuesday 17th April?
There is a call for this day to be International Prisoners Day, particularly regarding prisoners unlawfully imprisoned or political prisoners. It is already a day to mark the detention of Palestinian prisoners. It also marked for two prisoners, Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox, in Louisiana, 40 years of solitary confinement. Forty years in solitary confinement in a cell measuring 2m by 3m.

As each page was completed it was first released on twitter. The books were sold to raise money for Amnesty International and localised Palestinian community group.
