Madonna Staunton 1996

A found Chinese picture story was the starting point for this book. Altered by layering letraset, rubber stamps and hand colouring, the artist sets up a new narrative. Covers are weathered scrap timber with stenciled numbers. Concertina format, 14.5 x 11.5 x 6.0 cm. Signed and dated in pencil. Unique.
