Read With Me
Read With Me is a new artist’s book by Sarah Bodman. It completes the experimental art project ‘Read to Me’ 2018-2022. This book is the result of: a performative drawing event at Arnolfini bookshop, readings of objects and drawings by a psychometric reader, collages made during lockdown and words assembled from the dissected readings. It was made in tribute to Susan Hiller’s Sisters of Menon (Coracle Press for Gimpel Fils, 1983), and references the size and cover of the original book.
Produced via a remote artist’s residency at the London Centre for Book Arts, UK, 2022. Edition of 60, 48 pages, 250 x 180 mm, interior four-colour risograph printed by Esther McManus on Redeem 130gsm recycled paper, relief printed (photopolymer plate) silver ink endpapers and cover, letterpress printed title plate.
