Back in Febuary I ran a couple of full on collage & typography workshops on the Graphics BA at Espom UCA. With 60 students per day we made some cracking work including 40 hand made collaged books and a 150’ sentence made from junk and street rubbish. The results of which have been included in this beautiful end of year book. Part hand book, part prospectus, part design project and part Catalogue. ‘Long Live the Art School’ is a really fresh way to show off what an Art College has to offer and to unearth what an Art School is, was and can be. And with contributions from Adrian Shaughnessy, Vaughan Oliver and Rick Poyner, if I was 21 again I’d want to study at Epsom. My favourite bit though is the scratch and sniff ‘Art School’ postcard, which instantly transports you back to the black fingernails and turps soaked rags of the print room. Mmmm..the smell of it.
