Final emblem catalogue image Final emblem catalogue image spineShandy 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…

The exhibition The Nabokov Paper – An experiment in novel-reading (accompanied by the book of the same name, For more details contact – thenabokovpaper@gmail.com) opened on October 26th at Shandy Hall …

In April 2012, ten artists, eight writers, six university professors, three translators, two architects, a librarian, a curator, a graphic designer, an illustrator and a computer engineer each selected a question on one of seven course texts: Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park, Charles Dickens’s Bleak House, Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Franz Kafka’s “The Metamorphosis”, Marcel Proust’s Swann’s Way, and James Joyce’s Ulysses. The responses they turned in take the form of writing, drawing, painting, film, graphs, indexes, lists, maps, newly designed editions, objects, scale-models, a lecture and a reading game. This work, together with an introduction to the aims of the project, is presented in The Nabokov Paper – a publication that acts both as a record of the experiment and an invitation to undertake it again.
