A Paper Bag for Port Eliot
For all those who may find themselves in either the Caught by the River Field at Port Eliot Festival or in the environs of the shop known as Albam in Spitalfields your attention is drawn to the availability of a Paper Bag that I have produced in conjunction with Albam Clothing and Martin Clark at Tilley Printing. As part of a general renaissance of paper packaging which is taking place across Arcadia, the Paper Bag has been printed in letterpress for the purposes of housing books from The Lost Angling Library of Arcadia. This is a folly which I will be running from my Tented Installation at Port Eliot and whose purpose is to put lost angling books, those that have been discarded from closing libraries and forgotten shop basements, back into circulation. The Paper Bag also marks the beginning of a collaboration between myself and Albam Clothing which will occur in the month known as October.
