 The Sunderland Book Project is a not for profit project.  Books are not for sale and visitors are positively encouraged to pick the work up, browse and read at leisure.

Theresa Easton  will be showing a selection of  book work including the latest addition ‘The Gardening Book’  which presents a collection of  lino prints and silk screen work on Hahnemuhle paper in a concertina style; as well as Travels in Time, which proved very popular at Ouseburn Open Studios, so much so that a visitor decided to help themselves, soshe is now left with just two copies!  It is a beautiful book that sits comfortably in the palm of the hand when folded up, but when unraveled tells a simple story of world culture and animal representation inspired by the Hancock Museum’s collection.
