Artist Book Spotlight: Jean Johnstone

A poetry reading with a difference - you do the reading, silently... Jean Johnstone invites you to slowly unwrap her artists books to experience the fine words of leading contemporary poets in the context of each individual art work. All of her small books contain one poem only, each complemented by delicate images from the natural world, on Lokta, Tsasho and Resho papers. Jean Johnstone is a Scottish artist who uses etchings, pen and ink drawings, leaf and bark papers, beeswax, silk and linen, to create handmade, hand-scripted artist’s books. She has made works with many Scottish poets, including John Burnside and Kathleen Jamie.
