whipping jumpy squirts - Mark Pawson 2014
The first section of whipping jumpy squirts is a 10 page, 2250 word typewriter poem or if
you prefer - concrete poem, which I constructed in 1994 and appears here for the first time
in print. This mammoth, grid formation text piece is accompanied by a riotous,
multicolour 18 page section of badge designs, text-based badges, many previously unseen,
which were made in tiny quantities or only distributed at specific events. Each copy of
whipping jumpy squirts is slightly different, the cover is laser printed onto 'found' papers,
the ink colours and page order were repeatedly changed during production.
A5, 36 pgs, 2014, digital stencil print/Risograph and laserprint, numbered edition of 250

THE ADDRESS IS THE ART - Mark Pawson, 2003-2017
The Address Is The Art is made from nearly three decades worth of collected envelopes
from family, friends, mailartists from around the world, junk mail, boring letters from the
bank and more... Covers are rubberstamped by hand with the addition of gummed labels
and stickers, I plan to assemble these continuously over the next few years - so there will
be variations within the edition - every copy is different.
Signed, numbered, handsewn, edition of 500 copies. 14x20cm, 20 pgs.

Starting with a big stack of secondhand maps of the UK, I've repeatedly printed over them
- building up multiple layers of symbols and imagery. There's new towns - fed with fresh
food from the adjacent greenhouses, acres of forests and orchards, thousands of wind
turbines, I've built hundreds of museums, art galleries, bookshops, libraries and reopened
Post Offices but there's also surveillence cameras everywhere...
"everybody's mapping nowadays" is simultaneously idealistic and practical, decorative
and critical.Plus there's Alien visitations, Geodesic dome clusters, flower bombing,
symbol salad and logo clutter, buried treasure and easter eggs. Screenprinted by hand
with hand-drawn elements, laserprint and stickers, each copy is slightly different.
Mark Pawson, 2012, edition of 120+ 20 Artists Proofs 38 pgs, 20 x 12.5 cm, french-fold
pages, handsewn with muticoloured thread, signed and numbered.

PAPER PAPER
These books are made out of the wrappers from reams of photocopier paper and
also the wrappers used to package paper and card when it's delivered by the
paper merchant/wholesaler, which I've collected/hoarded for several years.
