Dimensions: [20] prints: 19 x 14 cm
Created by: Tom Phillips
Set of 20 color offset prints, signed by the artist. These prints are based on William Hurrell Mallock's Victorian era novel, A Human Document Phillips. These prints are a part of a decades-long, ongoing exploration of the visual and conceptual possibilities that Phillips generates through the act of painting, drawing or creating collages over the pages, leaving some of the original text on show (thus creating an entirely new text within the original pages). CBA copy contains several duplicate prints and is not likely a complete set from this (undated) edition.
