What's in the Box? Volumes I to V
A project for the Centre for Fine Print Research, published as a collection of artists’ books curated and edited by
Tom Sowden. Supported and sponsored by: CFPR, UWE School of the Creative Arts and Hewlett Packard.

Each project involves MA Printmaking students, UWE staff and invited artists who are asked to contribute 16 pages for an artist’s book. Each book is digitally printed from a single, A3 folded sheet and bound in covers in a standard style. The content of the books is entirely up to the artist, the only stipulation being that it must be A6, 16 pages long and able to be printed on a laser printer.

The books are collected in batches of ten within plain, uniform boxes. From the outside of box or the book they all look very similar. The surprise comes when the book is opened.

The project has so far produced five boxed volumes of books by 50 artists across many different themes and styles.

Books can be ordered individually or in boxed sets, see below for more information.
