Recently Artists in Residence Andrea Popyordanova and Sarah Bissel have been working with our first years to make a book to sell at the Fruitmarket book fair and Bookmarks which is happening at the ECA soon.
Students were presented with a page from Italo Calvino’s book Invisible Cities and asked to create an illustration within a week representing the City of Zobeide from the book.
The images created were great and varied, showing the different perspectives students have chosen to represent. Andrea and Sarah then took to arranging them for screen printing and then binding them, with the first years help.
The final outcomes look great and they were received very well at the Fruitmarket last week. Come see them at Bookmarks on the 24th of March where they’ll be on sale.
