I am pleased to say that my book 'Roker (20 yards to the beach)' was selected by Theresa Easton, to feature in the Sunderland Book Project alongside other books and artwork inspired by the region.
'The Sunderland Book Project invites national and international artists, designers, bookmakers and printmakers to design and make an artist's book, pamphlet, zine or comic inspired by the North East of Englands coastal city of Sunderland.
The aim of the project is to collect a wide range of unique interpretations of the city of Sunderland from around the world. The books will be exhibited in national and international venues, reflecting the cities international export tradition.'
