Flat Holm Book artists’ book launch and reading by Chris Scully: Bristol Artists’ Book Event (BABE)

The limited edition artists’ book is hand-made by ottoGraphic with poems by Chris Scully about Flat Holm.

Otto is a well-known international illustrator, printmaker and book artist. Chris Scully was a summer volunteer on Flat Holm in 2014.

Otto visited Flat Holm several times during 2014 and collected visual material which he turned into a substantial body of illustrations and screen prints. On one visit he met resident trainee warden, Chris Scully, who had written numerous poems about Flat Holm. The poems matched the images, so Otto decided to make a book with illustrations and poetry.

The book is available from Otto’s website: http://www.ottographic.co.uk or you can contact him directly on otto@ottographic.co.uk or 01225 891 581.

You can read more of Chris Scully’s poems on his website: http://scullychristopher.blogspot.co.uk and you can contact him directly on chrisscull@googlemail.com or 0780 5261739.
