Clive Sefton let me know about this fantastic website unlimitededitions.co.uk. Several of the artists I've already featured on the blog are here, including Clive and Jacqui Sharples. Unlimited Editions is based in Brighton and create their own pieces as well as featuring the work of other artists. They have a shop in Brighton as well as the website gallery.One of the artists they feature is John Christopher who did this fabulous letterpress print based on the Shipping forecast.
The shipping forecast has always been a source of wonder, mysterious place names and confusion. I have fond memories of listening to the forecast as a little girl whilst eating my tea! I might consider basing a papercut on that very memory...
But as you can see I'm not the only person who has been inspired by this weather based poetry.
This print is from Chay Hawes of Chayground
And this blueprint by Russell Squires of spacemonkeypress sheds a little bit more light on the locations of these strange sounding places.
Now time for tea and the shipping forecast!
