Pages and prints for my upcoming book “Lachrymose: pool of tears”. This was inspired initially by the idea of frozen sea and suspended water droplets seeming like frozen tears. Alice in Wonderland’s pool of tears made me think of preposterous conditions for swimming, and of tear drops as relics.

The pages are screen printed onto old magazine paper( L’Oeil) and carbon paper: some are printed over ink drawings.

It is a 12 page newspaper containing invented narratives about incidents around the Arnolfini Gallery (“Garlanded Gallery”), the Clifton suspension bridge (“Blossoming Bridge”), and the Cabot Tower (“Cabot Conundrum”).It also contains an article on the discovery of antique texts documenting supposed maritime marvels, “The Severn Siren”, and a”True Story of a Monstrous Fish”. There is also an agony aunt page and an advert heralding the visit to Bristol of Mystic Sid….. Copies are still available if you would like to read more about “Blooming Bristol!”
