OCAD Book Arts Fair November 29, 2014

Upcoming at the OCAD Book Arts Fair on November 29, 2014
New from Pointyhead Press: the relaunch of "Fragmenta Disjecta".   Fragmenta was the first Pointyhead Press publication in 1998.  Now revised, redesigned, expanded and in colour, Fragmenta Disjecta, literally 'scattered fragments', a spoof on rare book catalogues, was put together by me and my colleague Reg Beatty as a submission to the 1998 Grimsby Wayzgoose Anthology.  Our modest efforts, photocopied in black and white, resulted in the release of a policy  statement on the production values of these contributions, to the effect that henceforth all such work must feature letterpress techniques.
Now to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Press,  Pointyhead has upped the production values considerably and while this new edition shows no signs of moving towards the letterpress end of things, we hope the new "Fragmenta" will provide an enjoyable experience to the reader. The attached picture displays the book arranged with the original objects.
