Taking clippings from The Observer, Czinczel re-contextualises Cobbing's poetry in relation to current affairs and highlights the library?s collection of his books, magazines and sound recordings to a new audience.

A dedicated season of artists' books curated by KALEID editions. Twelve internationally acclaimed artists engage with the Saison Poetry Library's collection in a diverse programme of exhibitions, interventions, residencies and participatory events.

Prompted by the Festival of Britain celebrations, contemporary artists are given a rare opportunity to draw upon Southbank Centre's archives and re-consider British identity sixty years on.

KALEID editions represents 'artists who do books', advocating public library collections and an interdisciplinary approach to artists' books.
