Extracts and Analects of an Eminent Author

Bush, M. (2010) Extracts and Analects of an Eminent Author. [Artist's book].

Item Type: Artefact
Abstract: Artists book in response to Centre for Fine Print Research UWE, Bristol's Regenerator II project. Sir Walter Scott's 'Biographical Memoirs of Eminent Novelists and other Distinguished Persons' Vol 3 was the original book. In researching its history, I was intrigued to find out about Scott’s prolific publication in his latter years, to pay off huge debts. Having already explored extracts from the book, particularly looking at the wonderful use of language and the illustrations, I decided to bring it all together in a contemporary publishing method - print on demand, into which I added more extracts; thus linking it to my other response
