Andy Campbell

The Renaissance books in the Norfolk Heritage Centre collection have been preserved throughout several centuries, surviving events such as fire, as well as natural deterioration. Andy was inspired by the play of sunlight emerging through pin-holes in the pages of this sixteenth-century work of English history: the result of hungry bookworms’ journey through the paper and a testament to the book’s own material passage through time.
