Glimpses Between the Folds
The Gentlemen’s collection is magical, but much of it hidden away and only glimpsed. As two contemporary book artists we are inspired by the amazing objects and books but conscious of how much is hidden from public view. Our initial pieces for the Heritage Open Day interpret this concept with playful structures that the public are invited to explore and discuss with us.
