The Sunderland Book Project, new blog, new exhibition opportunity

Open Call for Submissions  for exhibition at BALTIC Artist’s Book Fair June 14th & 15th 2013

The Sunderland Book Project invites national and international artist’s, 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.  Choose from the city’s rich history in seafaring, industrial heritage and glass making, (to name just a few) or document contemporary landmarks such as the Stadium of Light, University City and  the Aquatic Centre boasting the only 50m swimming pool between Leeds and Edinburgh!

Background 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.  To date 56 participants and 48 books make up The Sunderland Book Project.
