'The Preface - Green'
"The Preface"

' The Preface' is part of a series of works, on paper or clay, which I hope to make, inspired by Robert Hooke's famous book Micrographia (1665) and especially by its wonderful preface.

Hooke was curator of experiments at the Royal Society at the time of Newton, and notoriously hated by Newton. I am grateful to the British Library for permission to reproduce sections of the original text in my work. ' The Preface' was shown at the exhibition of artists' books, 'Unending' , by East London Printmakers at the Westminster Central Reference Library in July 2013.
