Artists’ Books in Howard Gardens library – a book a day in October – day 30!

The author, Reijo Karkkainen, says of ‘No One Go Home’

“I visited in Marseille 2009. Pakito Bolino, the leader of the art group called Le Dernier Cri, was invited me for a one week workshop and during that time Pakito and I planned and printed the book. I had my drawings and original stories with me, but I made also more material during the printing process, then we cut and composed my material again. So the book is a kind of collage of my material and of course it looks like real Le Dernier Cri stuff because of original printing style by publisher”.
