Print is what I am and what I do. I teach on the Art & Design Foundation course at York College, where I look after the Visual Communication specialist area. My personal interest is in anything printed but type in particular. I make works which are printed and have a healthy obsession for beautiful and innovative printing, commercial or otherwise. I also like photography which is printed on lovely papers and surfaces.

The Wolf by Joseph Smith - Jonathan Cape 2008

The wolf is in the verge of starvation and desperation puts him in to contact with man. The fox offers a way out, a meal and a way to survive the winter but the wolf cannot afford to trust him. This wonderful little volume is more powerful than it looks. The relationship between John Spencer's beautiful wood cuts and a jaw dropping narrative is profound and moving. Joseph Smith may not want to be compared to Jack London but there are similarities. The raw, elemental forces, instincts, motivations which drive the story forward are so reminiscent of London's famous tales. This is a very good thing. Spell binding.
