Shandy Hall has just released the sumptuous catalogue for their 2011 exhibition “The Emblem of my Work” designed to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Sterne’s marbled page, which Sterne described as ‘the motly emblem of my work’, 169 artists and writers were invited to design the Emblem of their own work.
Finally, this box of delights has been concocted where the identity of each Emblem-maker can be discovered in the booklet provided. The catalogue is limited to 225 copies of which only 55 are available (170 copies are reserved for the participating artists and writers).
If you would like to reserve a copy, please contact the Curator at Shandy Hall.
The catalogue has been produced for the Laurence Sterne Trust by Colin Sackett.
Each contains an original, miniature marbled page by Payhembury Marbled Papers.
I’m proud to be included in this catalogue alongside such luminary colleagues as Tom Phillips, John Baldessari, Jen Bervin, Christian Bok, Helen Hajnoczky, Eric Zboya, Lemony Snicket and Eugen Gomringer…
