Organised by the Centre for Fine Print Research at the University of the West of England, Bristol;
“To celebrate the National Year of Reading and World Book in 2008 we invited artists to make contributions to Reading Around… on World Book Day (06/03/08) and send them to us by the end of March.
Artists responded to the call with pages of artwork, audio recordings and video files which have been collated into the Reading Around website archive for you to enjoy.
The works submitted range from pieces inspired by or referencing novels to thoughts about reading, acts of reading, and mail art reading pieces.
We have 60 artists’ pages for viewing or download, some short movies and audio pieces about reading / books and a free download PDF e-book, which you can print out and make up into your own book.”
All the pages, and more information about ‘Reading Around’, can be found at
