Shipping News

Lynn Taylor

"Shipping News" is a hand bound book by artist Lynn Taylor created specifically for the exhibition 'Elements'. The book was created in response to the artist's initial response to the paper they were sent which was a tactile one: "the lightness set off with a delicate texture, deckled edge and watermark. On it's own it is art itself!"

To reflect these qualities and allow the viewer tactility, this paper has been printed and curated alongside Fabriano Rosaspina (60% cotton paper) and a wide variety of other papers into: "Shipping News". Throughout the book nautical maps sit next to vintage handbook extracts, gauzy material and rusted sheets of paper: each time the viewer turns the page something new is revealed.

"Tactility is becoming more important as we move to an increasingly online world and the combination of print and a book, which can be held in an intimate way creates impact,
narrative, emotion and remembrance."

Lynn, the artist, hopes that the owner of "Shipping News" will add to it with their own
drawings and mementos.
