    About The Work

    This work, Hogarth Reprinted: Kew Gardens, is from a series of six prints that began with Lucy Skaer’s own photographs of first-edition books produced by Virginia and Leonard Woolf at their Hogarth Press, a self-publishing initiative born from their rejection of the dominance of commercial printing, and a desire to reclaim the means of production. Their book covers were made in traditional hand-craft processes such as marbling, paste-papermaking and painting. Through experimentation with different printing methods Skaer has reconstructed an ‘optical echo’ of each book cover, creating new prints that project some quality of the books’ original appearance.
