I enjoyed the opportunity to look around the  4th Sheffield International Artists’ Book Prize exhibition today, being held at Bank Street Arts. The exhibition was an eclectic array of 450 pieces from national and international artists and I was fortunate to have an edition of Stardust included in the show. I could have spent days in the exhibition, looking at all the different books, the varied concepts and techniques used. It was also a particular treat to be able to watch a performance of The Icebook, an emotive story using animation, projected onto a pop up book.
