Three Scenes From Everyday Life

Charcoal-dark and spiky illustrations by artist Becalalis Brodskis form the twisted backbone to writer Jonathan Lewis’ limited edition book of poems, Three Scenes From Everyday Life. Original printing plates created by Brodskis have been cut up and reassembled as graphic ‘sculptures’ depicting Lewis’ characters. ‘The theme is a world in which violence is everyday and loneliness is endemic,’ he says. The resulting images look like morose brass-rubbings from the deeper recesses of Roald Dahl’s imagination. Five hundred copies of the book, designed by Yeong-woong Cheong and published by Doctorpuss, will be available from 3 May.
