with one comment


Friday 18 February, 7pm – 9pm

Modern Art in Everyday Life, Sara MacKillop

This book records another book. The artist picked up a second-hand copy of the publication Modern Art in Everyday Life, then found another copy at a later date, in another bookshop, that had been annotated by an anonymous author. The material changes undergone from its original publication to resurfacing in a bargain bin are portrayed here.

Printed in a limited edition of 200 copies.

Special launch price £6.50

Bedford Press is a private press and imprint of AA Publications. More information available at

Modern Art In Everyday Life will be presented alongside a limited edition print by Sara MacKillop for Bedford Press
