Jaipur, Dehli, & Agra, Travels Into Riso Print, Three Books By Daniel Lehan

10 to 7 April 2018

This exhibition at bookartbookshop launches three Riso books, and features in the shop window, the original collaged postcards which form the basis for the books.

The books were printed at the London Centre for Book Arts, where I usually produce editions of collaged concertina books. These Riso books are the first that I have made. The texts of each book derives from texts cut from tourist guides and histories of each city. Each copy is stab bound and a sheet of glassine separates each page. The books are approximately three times the size of the original postcard books. I am grateful to the book artist George Cullen for his help, and technical support in the making of these books.
