Peter Chasseaud's Isaac Rosenberg artist's book, work in progress

I'm going to post images of work-in-progress on the Rosenberg book as they develop. Here is a jumble of cut stencils and printed test pages. The white shapes lying on the Dead Man's Dump page (top left) are the remnants of a trees stencil I was cutting; I left them lying on the page by accident, and I thought they looked good just like this! See also below.

This image utilises two stencils: the grey-green background one of the trees, and the dark red foreground one of the two soldiers. I'll probably use others to create a more layered image.

Peter Chasseaud at Modern Works on Paper Fair, Royal Academy

Thanks to all those wonderful visitors to the Modern Works on Paper Fair at the Royal Academy (30 Jan - 3 Feb 2008) who shared their memories of, and thoughts of, London (Kings Cross, St Pancras, Euston, the River, the Docks), Afghanistan, Isaac Rosenberg and many other topics of conversation during the five days of the Fair. I hope you will use this blog to continue to share ideas. In this way my artist's books become truly interactive, inclusive and accessible.

Euston Arch
I took a photo of the Doric Arch at Euston around 1960, but have lost both it and the negative. Does anyone have one that I could use (acknowledgement given, of course) in a forthcoming artist's book?
