“In the style of American paper-boys, Papergirl distributes rolled art pieces by bicycle to passers-by. Giving the work out by bike means that there is no time for any stereotypes when choosing recipients of the pieces. You have to react fast and spontaneously. Chance plays its part.”
Why are we telling you this? Because this year Surgery7 will be one of the 50 featured artists taking part in PaperGirl, Manchester!
So, calling all Mancunians! Take a stroll down to Soup Kitchen on Wednesday, June 15 - 6-11:30pm and see the art at the launch of the PaperGirl Mcr exhibition. There you’ll be able to set your eyes on one of a kind illustrations, photography, designs, screen prints and zines from 50 local and international artists.
If we weren’t 10563 miles away, we’d already be waiting at the doors!
The Book:If you love her fiction, you will enjoy the fact that Smith’s voice is just as funny, insightful, unaffected and wise in her non-fiction essays. In this, which covers everything from the joys of reading Nabokov to Italian cinema, from the conditions of life in Liberia to her own relationship with her family and father, the reader gets to know aspects of her as a person, not merely as an author. It is instantly clear that she is not merely a dazzling writer, but an incredible human being, as well as a fine journalist and reviewer.

The Cover: Typography caught our eye with this gothic-esque design. An elegant black cover accompanied with a timely medieval font. But what sent us head over heels in love with this book was the spot UV treatment used on the typeface as well as the decorative ornament border stamped in gold foil. This cover made us feel many things… especially the urge to go out and buy a pocket watch.
The Book: The Kingdom of Ohiois a fast paced adventure that incorporates both science fiction and historical fiction. It is a story about high ideals, social responsibility, Hugh Everett’s theory of Relative State Formulation, love, and the human condition. Flaming engages the reader with fascinating characters, creative scenarios, and footnotes that spark a flurry of research into US history.
