SOCIOLOGY AND CULTURE LIBRARY CARD ART SET
Five mixed ink drawings on vintage library cards, connected around the theme of politics, psychology, economy and culture (sociology).
The Interpretation Of Social Reality by Max Weber
Elites and Society by T. Bottomore
The Power Motive by David G. Winter
Ethics by John Dewey
On Economic Growth by David M. Bensusan-Butt
These days, library sign-out cards are curiosity items –– something that you occasionally still find in the back of an older library book (and something you bore your kids with, telling them about the old days of paper and signatures and stamps). So, in a bit of recycling-meets-vintage, I take these obsolete things and repurpose them as art, and original ink drawings work in concert with the card's marks and history.
They work fantastically well as bookmarks, as gifts tucked into greeting (or Christmas) cards, or as frameable art in their own right (the ink washes make them luminous, especially behind glass).
Each attractively packaged in a clear plastic sleeve with a decorative card top.
Have a friend who loves literature and politics? What could make a better, more original gift?
These are vintage cards, with sign-out dates going back to the fifties and sixties.
The drawings are wholly original, done freehand, directly onto the cards, in acrylic wash and ink.
Mailed with heavy card or board so they won't bend in transit.
Everything shipped comes with an extra art surprise.
And remember: every thing, every soul, becomes dyed with the colour of its use, its thoughts, the world.
