Book Shop

All books for sale on this site are made by myself at MSP. I create the concept, illustrations, I screen print and bind. On some titles I have worked with writers or poets.


I try to keep the books as affordable as possible, while still providing me with a basic income. As a professional book artist making books and prints is my fulltime occupation. The books are perhaps a little more expensive than mass produced books, but are after all 'original' screen prints, likely to rise in value over time.


Various titles are also available available from:

     Whitechapel Gallery Shop, London

     Magma Books

     Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh

     Bookart Bookshop, London

     Doooogs, China

     Printed Matter, New York

     Minnesota Centre for Book Arts, Minneapolis

     Magalleria, Bath

     La Sonnette, Lausanne

     Resurgo, Berlin


Talks

Occasionally I give talks or workshops at schools and universities. Please contact me regarding fees.


History

I have been creating and publishing screen-printed books since graduating from an MA in Illustration at Kingston University, 1996. I now screen-print books at my workshop near Bath.

When creating visual narratives I experiment with new designs and try to push the boundaries of visual language. The picture books are made for adults, although of course can be read by children.

I show and sell work at international Artists' Book Fairs.

Wholesale

Books can be bought wholesale at 60% of the retail price +p&p based on a minimum order of 10 copies of the same title.


Purchase

All books are hand made and no one book is quite like another. There might be small 'imperfections', as screen printing is not a perfect science. I have never had a complaint or had to return an item, as I check every book before posting it. However, if you are not happy with your purchase, I will accept returns or exchange for another item, but you have to pay for your own postage.
