Barrie Tullett is the featured artist at this year’s Artists’ BookMarket, with a month-long exhibition at Custom Lane, running on from the fair. Tullett is the author of Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology, Laurence King Publishing, 2014, and has been working for the last thirty years on an obsessive project to make a visual representation of each of the 100 cantos of ‘Dante’s Divine Comedy’ using the ‘obsolete’ technologies of wood and metal type, typewriters and letraset.

This showing marks the completion of the series and includes four digital ‘remixes’ of Tullett’s prints from Dublin-based graphic designer Brenda Dermody.
