Learning To Draw

Skylight Press in Gloucestershire has published Basil King’s sequence Learning To Draw/A History. I’ve written on the work in progress elsewhere, in #15 of Big Bridge. Significantly King gave the task of assembling the sections to Daniel Staniforth at Skylight. Significantly because this underlines the fact that this book isn’t an exercise in high modernism: it has a democratic rather than an autocratic provenance. It says ‘enter reader where you wish and read as you wish’.
