Don't forget that next week, on Monday 20th October, New York-based book artist Roni Gross will be giving a talk entitled 25 years of Zitouna. Zitouna have issued multiples for the past 25 years. Begun as a means of celebrating the secular holidays of Halloween and Valentine’s Day, these projects developed into explorations of the themes of love and death. The objects have taken many forms over the years - letterpress, offset and xerox prints, photography, watercolour and collage are just some of the mediums employed. Many pieces are in the permanent collections of universities and museums.
The talk should be excellent and will be from 7pm to 8.30pm at Hot Bed Press, Casket Works, Cow Lane (off Oldfield Road), Salford M5 4NB - tickets will be sold on the door, £10 (£5 for Hot Bed Press members).
