Welcome To Morecambe Update.

Due to the continuing work on the promenade, a further section between Morecambe and Heysham has been modernised. Therefore there are seven more safety signs along that section, which have been recreated here as an addition to the book. A recent cycle ride further north uncovered another sign, which brings the total number of pages of the book to thirty-one.

Organised by the Centre for Fine Print Research at the University of the West of England, Bristol;

Reading Around…

“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
