Typos: reviewed by Vertigo
A really great review of Typos published by Terry Pitts in Vertigo this month...
“One of the many ingenious aspects of Typos is the sheer variety of ways in which Evans’ cryptic or humorous aphorisms have been turned into signs or other objects.”
Vertigo's specialist theme is literature with embedded photographs, so we really appreciate the review from a writer with particular interest in this area.
And what an honour to be reviewed alongside the classic 'Nat Tate' by William Boyd.
Peculiarity Press will have a stand at PAPER INK PRINT 2023 - a new festival at Landmark Arts Centre
Friday 17th, 4-8pm
Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th, 10am-4.30pm

Lovely launch event at the Camden Image Gallery last week - so great to see all the work featured in this book in person, and to meet so many of the artists. The book arrived and is beautiful, I'm so pleased with how it has come together, and it is now being shipped out to places all over the globe, from Montreal to Morocco! Please order soon - this is a limited run.

105 Artists' Hands reviews
The book has been posted out to all who pre-ordered and we've been getting some lovely feedback.
"A really rich selection of actions and identities."
Annie Rapstoff, artist
"I'm so blown away by the illuminating writing and thinking about hands touch bodies creativity and making brought together here. And by how Cally's stunning hand portraits embody the life of the hand in our artist lives. Each photograph by Cally is an insight into the tactile inner worlds of making. I'm also somehow so moved by this book. By our togetherness in it. Our single body with multiple hands like so many feelers reaching out to touch the world and be touched by it."
Salma Ahmad Caller, artist
"Cally's photographs are full of character, of the artist herself and of the artists whose hands she has photographed, and tell us something poignant, significant, and new about artists' hands." (Philip Lee, artist)
"The book is full of surprising, clearly carefully thought-out images, and I can see why you describe the photographs as having been 'made' rather than 'taken'. My favourite images/texts were those of your hands, Tony Moody, and Katrin Gaska (I love explosions of colour when done well). My award for the perfect text goes to the words by Steve Perfect, who knows how to startle and evoke, rather than merely describe."
Michèle Nayman, novelist and journalist
" ... so many rich imaginative sort of mini performances captured."
John McDowall, artist
"What a splendid collection of images and thoughts about hands. Each page unique in its originality."
Malgorzata Bialokoz Smith, artist
"Glorious! Magical images and such a good design."
Julia Maddison, artist
"... lovely handfuls of words, photos and insights."
Stephen Guy, artist
"It's rich in images, experiences, perspectives and stories."
Ahmed Farooqui, artist
"The book is superbly put together; so well thought through in every way."
Guy Tarrant, artist
