Library Display: Franticham's Assembling Boxes


The Library's new display on the top floor of the Main Library features the latest acquisitions to the Artists' Books Collection, Franticham's Assembling Boxes nos. 1 & 2.
These limited edition publications from Red Fox Press in Ireland comprise A5 cardboard boxes filled with 23 limited edition artworks by invited contributing artists, from prints to postcards, and from badges to metalwork. The theme of the boxes is visual poetry and other Fluxus-inspired work.
Each box comes in a limited edition of 40 signed and editioned copies, with only 15 made available for sale.
