My contribution to the exhibition is a hand sewn and constructed book which will be strong enough, with luck, to survive about 26 journeys by post to members of the Group.

The pages are all recycled envelopes, with additional strong strips and labels and a cover of strongly woven mattress ticking.

Each P.S.G. member has been asked to contribute a double page connecting in some way with the subject matter of the previous page.

This challenge has produced a series of widely varied and fascinating images, rather like "Chinese whispers" which demonstrate the exciting individual creativity of all my friends.
