Who can forget the madness that was last years 'London Show' which saw Adam Neate leave 1000 works throughout all 33 boroughs of London on the night of the 14th November 2008. The London Book pictured above, was released over the weekend and is the latest book to be published by Elms Lesters Gallery. This new publication aims to documents the art event through from the production process, to images of the works left in situ, through to press cuttings and people's personal accounts of the event.
Published by Elms Lesters and hard bound in a limited edition of 1000 copies (the same as the number of artworks left in the street and similarly shrinkwrapped) it contains over 100 colour images across 88 pages, with an introduction by art historian Ben Jones and an outro by writer and editor Mike Von Joel.
As an integral part of this public participation event, which captured the imagination of people all over the world, this book is being sold at cost for £25 plus postage.
The book is available to purchase via the Elms Lesters website or in person directly from the gallery.
