The concept catalogue which accompanied Stuart Semple’s London solo show of the same name in Spring 2010 takes on the form of a music zine, with Stuart’s new works the subject for analysis.

Bound in a hand decorated cardboard sleeve, all inked and designed by Stuart himself, the old skool NME style newspaper is emblazoned with high spec images of all the pieces from the solo show in question. It also includes a publication specific essay about Stuart’s unique vein of painting, written by BBC and Evening Standard critic Ben Lewis, as well as an interview with Stuart and a review of the works in the show album critique style by a former NME writer.

Continuing with the true music mag style, there is a centre piece one off glossy poster designed by Stuart to accompany the show, as well as flyers and a tea bag to sup on while you read, of course. Limited stock available.
