‘Aprons, Cooking, Sports and Villains.’
“Collecting imagery found and scanned from children’s literature, both classic and contemporary, this project aims to directly compare the ratio and style of imagery of males to females in four distinct categories: Aprons, Cooking, Sports and Villains.
One half of each book is dedicated to males found in one of the scenarios and the other half for females in the same scenario. The physical size of each section, ratio of males to females, and depiction of each gender in these activities makes for a fascinating observation.
This project shows how there is a discrepancy of real life representations of males and females found in children’s literature. It shows that old-fashioned notions still exist even though society has changed. In Apron we find that there are a lot more females wearing aprons as opposed to men. Cooking continues this trend, depicting more women cooking compared to men. With Sports we find that the variety of sports undertaken by men is far wider than that of woman. Furthermore, the book Villains demonstrates the oddest find, as it is the only book to have a relatively even number of males to females within that role.”
I’m still really suprised about this but in june I found out that I was one of the winners in the competition “Artists’ Books on Tour.” A total 925 projects were submitted to this competition and of those 50 were chosen and I was one of those 50.
“In order to bring visibility to contemporary developments in the field of artists’ books, we offer artists a platform to share their work within a unique all-European competition among book artists for the first time ever. We therefore invite artists to hand in their recent or planned art projects in the field: submissions will be accepted as completed physical or digital book objects or in the form of conceptual designs for projected but yet-unrealized book works. Outstanding works will be awarded a grant given by an international jury.”

This is a sneaky look at the book I have made for The Piracy Project.
“Andrea Francke & AND Publishing would like to invite you to contribute to The Piracy Project, an international publishing and exhibition project exploring the philosophical, legal and practical implications of book piracy and creative modes of reproduction. The project includes a series of talks and a five-day production workshop held at the Byam Shaw Library. The submitted works will then tour to international venues in 2011.” Taken from the website here.
I love finding paper, I did some tidying of my paper stack the other day, and found this old wallpaper.
A valentines themed book. This is the first of two designs around the theme, that I have been experimenting with.
