The first book to be published by Axis Projects, ‘fifteen+one’ celebrates our first 15 years in Manchester, by looking back at our archive and revisiting 15 books we have designed during that time, plus the book which was the catalyst for arriving in the city.
We invited those artists, curators and collaborators to make new work specifically for the publication, some of these responses were directly related to the initial projects, others were completely new and reflected current practice.
With new work by artists such as Peter Greenaway, Mark Wallinger and Mark Dion, this book is truly a collector’s item, however all the artists involved have made it a fascinating and rewarding experience. It is a book rich in content including spot varnishes, 3D pages, inserts, a numbered poster and an artist scratch card – it is full to bursting!
The edition is limited to 500 individually numbered hardbacks.
Artists involved: Paul Melia, Sue Fox, Grennan & Sperandio, Mark Wallinger, Paul Bayley / Michael Trainor, Matthew Frost, Julia Manheim, Bev Bytheway, John Newling , Peter Greenaway, Len Grant, Mark Dion, Neville Gabie, Martin Stockley, Kathy Rae Huffman, Peter Fraser, Ruth Charity
