BOOK LAUNCH | TO YOU: AN INTIMATE READING EXPERIENCE

Thursday 01 August 2019, 18:00 to 20:00
Free

Arnolfini Bookshop is delighted to welcome Artist Yiota Demetriou for the Bristol launch of To You.

Written and conceived by Yiota Demetriou, with help from her co-conspirator and book artist/designer Tom Abba, To You presents a unique experience in which the reader’s touch and body heat gradually reveal words on otherwise blank pages.

Hidden within are evocative love letters that were never sent and are addressed To You, the reader. The letters are poetry written in prose, contemplating the mysteries of human relationships, love, attachment, loss, and affection. The letters draw parallels between the intense erotic delusions played out in the exchange of love letters, and the dynamics between touch and heartbreak.

Join us for the launch at Arnolfini Bookshop to experience the book first hand and hear Yiota discuss the To You project.

Designed as a concertina that engages its readers physically, this unique book is a special edition of only 150 and will be available for £75.00.
