In 2015 I began a series of large scale drawings “Housing Area”, based on existing unoccupied buildings. In these, the architectural image is re-configured and further disrupted by the shifts and slips of the drawing process. This book is a continuation of that series in a new format, the mimeograph. It has been printed on two Gestetner duplicators, a Neo Cyclostyle c. 1890 and a Gestetner 420 c. 1960, the former one of the first truly egalitarian print mediums, a small scale duplicator developed to reproduce hand writing. Printed on Munken Pure Rough 120gsm paper using original charcoal grey Gestetner ink. All other colour has been inserted manually through carbon paper.
