Over 120 Characters
The adventures of a 7s piece. By Ann Mary Hamilton 1811
So far I have counted over 120 characters in this book, it is split into 2 volumes but the books are not huge, about 20mm deep. I am currently reading through these books for a second time, extracting text to put with a character taken from current celebrity magazines and gossipy tabloid newspapers. My interpretation of this book will be a mammoth project but I do have an idea of the final piece which may culminate in an installation. I am very excited about the outcome , but still lots of cutting out, scanning and placing text extracts from the book.
