The British drug store chain Boots ran small, circulating, pay-as-you-read libraries from 1900-1940.
Congratulations to Chris Pig, tutor here at ELP, for getting selected to be part of Parallel Prints - his work will be travelling around the Uk, to New Zealand and then back in time for Impact in Dundee at the end of August.
Chris was elected to the Society of Wood Engravers in 2012. Look out for his work at the Bankside Gallery.
Flying totally under my radar until just now, I’m thrilled to discover ELP two weeks before going to London for a couple of weeks! With a vast archive of yet to be posted stuff about my time in the US it just makes sense to add an equally big folder of photos and scribbled down notes about the printmaking scene in the UK.
SAYING: if you’re from the UK, get in touch - follower-wise BHP is off the Pokedex Scale (649+), so maybe not everyone is from the States?
