As We Alter It

Publication, 202 x 246mm
Cathy Wade

As We Alter It is a publication which documents the correspondences undertaken by Cathy Wade, as part of her 2016 Wheatley Fellowship at Birmingham School of Art. Correspondents included Elly Clarke, Tim Etchells, Harold Offeh, and Laurence Price.

The first part of the book repurposes parts of the various letters to form a new text, displayed alongside images and slogans created by Cathy. Overlaying these, printed in yellow, are drawings from the correspondence, and found shapes taken from a vastly enlarged envelope security pattern.

The second part, on yellow stock, reproduces the letters in their entirety, along with scans of the envelopes they were sent in.

Copies are available for sale. Please get in touch if you’d like one.

Printed by Rope Press.
