  1. The email I contacted regarding the upcoming Personal Histories Artists Book submission and more details failed to send. Can you give me the information? Kind regards from a very rainy Dublin!!

  2. Really love your 'Tinted Undercoat Required' book of green squares. The whole is definitely more than the sum of the parts here. You've really pared the concept back to essentials and the effect is stunning, really vibrant. Hope you don't mind, we've added you to our Inspiration archive. Many thanks!
