I'm looking for artists who make altered books and are based in London for an exhibition entitled 'The Written City'. If you are interested please be in touch with images.

If one is exploring the iconography of the book - making text based pieces is going to be very difficult if one is working in a cross cultural context. I was dismayed at how much work was linguistically specific and therefore lacking in any cross cultural relevance at the Venice Biennale this year. The significance of the 'book' as an idea and a physical object goes way beyond one language, one culture and one aesthetic. The altered books group has the potential to address this in a meaningful way and I would like to see that happen.
