small publishers fair at conway hall, holborn
absolutely fascinated by this publication "Closure", by Sarah Bodman (who was actually standing behind the table, and I didn't know that...arrrggh). Anyways:
she combines flower arrangements with product descriptions/names of fighter jets. on her website it is described as "An artist’s book about the end of a love affair between a flower arranger and a plane spotter." http://www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk/sbooks/sbg29b.htm ...
I just felt it was very interesting what the title did to the image and that only the flowers were visualized and the fighter jets stayed on the written level...very, very good I thought.
