If you are curious about books made by artists then do not miss the “Bookish” exhibition at Umbrella Contemporary Arts Studio on until the end of this month. It features many, many artists’ books made by Sheree Kinlyside and Sandra Wright utilising a range of subject matter and techniques from digital to fine press printing to unique paper folds and repurposed paraphernalia. It is not to be missed.
