The First is the sequel to a book I produced in 2008 called The Last.
Following a similar concept, the book is a typographic exploration of responses from participants who answered a series of questions relating to the theme of ‘the first…’

When used out of context, the texts become abstract and idiosyncratic, leaving the viewer to form their own opinion as to what the statements relate to.

The texts are supported by a series of screen-printed images based on line drawings by Tamar MacLellan.

Additional Information:This artefact will be exhibited as part of 'Many Hands' - an exhibition organised by the Women's Arts Association, that celebrates International Women's Day 2011 at The Gate, Cardiff. This book has been purchased by Cardiff Metropolitan University for their collection. This book has been purchased by Oxford Brookes University for its Artists' Books Collection.
