LECTOLALIA (a romance), an experiment in art-writing that responds to the material sensuality of texts, along with an accompanying short film of the same name, was created by Emma Bolland for the Leeds College of Art & Design ‘Library Interventions’ residencies, and has recently been performed by Bolland as part of a screening/reading at Artists Book Market at the Baltic in Gateshead. You can view the performance here.
This bespoke, signed, and hand-numbered first edition of 150 copies is published by Gordian Projects in association with Leeds College of Art & Design. Typeset in Perpetua and Perpetua Titling, and printed on pearl grey paper, the edition is hand-stitched, and issued with hand-printed covers and contrasting dust jackets created by the author in multiple colour combinations.
Place & Memory is the culmination of a year-long psychogeographcal collaboration by artists and writers Amanda Burton, Donna Coleman, Sarah Deakin, Charys Ellmer, Sandy Holden, Lorna Johnstone, Morticia and Nigel Stone. A handsome 64-page paperback, designed to reflect the spirit of collaboration and discovery that developed during the artists’ journey, Place & Memory is a text and image exploration of a city and its emotions. “This transient sense of journey within environment is beautifully resolved through word and image. Word has been used as narrative, document, question and aesthetic. Each artist has constructed a world in which the viewer is being asked to enter and explore an anatomy of a different part of the city, offering an invitation to listen to the rhythms being played.” Dominique Cameron
