21 Parry, John John Parry / Artist in Residence / December 2003-February 2004
Warsaw, Poland Centrum Sztuki Wapolczesne 2004 First Edition Double Folded Wraps Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
I really don't know what this is, except that the British Council in Poland produced it, apparently to document the outcome of Parry's residency. In the narrative, in Polish and English, Parry refers to it as a catalogue. He is an animator, but the intent here is to remove the movement from animation and unnecessary words from narrative. OK. The visual theme is drawn from the old westerns Parry watched as a kid on Saturday mornings. Fine in double folded wraps.

134 pages, with 40 color plates tipped in and mounted on card with all tissue guards present, plus miscellaneous decorations in black and white.
