Gordon Powell’s Composition Book

I don’t remember how I came across the website of artist Gordon Powell, but I loved this photo of his work space, with a composition book in progress:

Powell has published a facsimile book with Printed Matter:

This work is a facsimile of an artist’s sketchbook, neatly bound within a facsimile of a marble blue composition book, its pages open to a series of small abstract pattern paintings. There is something deeply satisfying about the way the tactile object is reproduced – including, for example, on each left hand side of the page, the faded imprint of another image. Included is a supplementary essay by James Yood.
