I just found a couple of used copies of this - get in touch if you'd like to buy one.
PAPER SAMPLES BOOK
A collection of old patterned papers that I bought from a printers intending to use them in
book projects. Seven years later most of it is sitting unused on a shelf taking up space and
gathering dust. I felt it was time to do something useful with it. This deluxe version
features theft, sex, guns and rolls of used ten pound notes!! (sort of...) A larger version,
with more pages and a lengthier explanation! Feb 2002 14x14 cm 26pgs

KNUSTS LITTLE BOOK ABOUT MAKING MARKS LITTLE BOOK
ABOUT NOGGINS/ KNUSTS LITTLE BOOK ABOUT MAKING KNUST BOOKS

This elaborately folded sandwich-shaped/sized booklet shows in drawings and
photographs, the processes involved book production at KNUST, on both the old,
hand-cranked stencil printers and their new digital stencil printer.
14 pgs + a hidden page, ingeniously bound without glue/staples/thread.
MARKS LITTLE BOOK ABOUT KINDER EGGS
1989 A monumental classic and a deserving best seller, over 10,000 copies printed - that's
enough to get into the UK bestsellers list if they'd all been sold in the same week!
Obsessive, meticulous, and altogether brilliant. Everything you ever wanted to know
about kinder egg toys. A chocumentary, if you will... Revised 2004 Version, 7x10cm,
32pgs. Hmmm, maybe one day I'll finally get around to doing a follow-up.

After keeping this in print for 20 years, I finally decided to stop reprinting it!

things, detailing current obsessions and the objects that I need to surround myself with.
