The Sunderland Book Project at Arts Centre Washington

The Sunderland Book Project will be on show at Sunderlands Winter Garden & Museum from June 9th until the 15th July 2012

The Sunderland Book Project is Theresa Easton’s latest artist’s book project initiative. The projects aim is to raise the profile of the city of Sunderland through the medium of artist’s books worldwide and provide a platform for bookmakers to exhibit and showcase their work. The project brief asks participants to make a book, in response to the city of Sunderland. The project is free to enter and has so far attracted over 50 participants from as far afield as Brazil.

Launched in September 2011 at Arts Centre Washington, Tyne & Wear, the exhibition positively promoted and encouraged audience participation by providing bespoke deck chairs to relax in while leafing through the books on display. All topics and production methods have been considered. From the hand-crafted to the ‘blurb’ produced photo book.

The next deadline for submitting work is 1st June 2012. Check out The Sunderland Book Project page @
