Every day during 2018 Robert Good collected the headlines offered to him by the automated Google News feed, to find out what sort of information we are being drip-fed hour by hour, day by day - and what sort of picture it paints of life today.
The result is BREAKING, over 13,000 news headlines carefully and compulsively edited into a hypnotic new book that holds a mirror up to the wallpaper of our lives - a mesmerising mix of sport, fashion, gossip and gloom.
We are excited to say that BREAKING will be launched on Thursday 7th March at Cambridge Artworks with an accompanying exhibition plus new video by Manchester artist Lizz Brady. Save the date - full details to follow!
Walk for Stanley book: update
Due to extremely difficult personal circumstances for Peter Driver, whose daughter is terminally ill, the publication of 'A Walk for Stanley' has pushed back to the summer. Peter says:
"Progress on the book project 'A Walk For Stanley' has slowed to a glacial pace since October. I'm half-way through making the series of woodcuts which will feature in the book. The prints will be woven together with my drawings, photographs, poetry, essays and bird observations to produce what I hope will be rather special publication. The writing task is also making slow progress. Therefore the intended publication date has been pushed back to the summer."
We thank all the supporters who have pre-ordered, and if you are not yet among that esteemed band, there is still time to place an advance order for the book, and to be in the first 100, who will receive an additional free woodcut print.
