8 Ways to Cook the Books is an artist’s book, which represents a satirical and humorous comment on the financial mismanagement by the G8 countries. Each of the G8 countries is represented by a recipe for quite literally cooking a book. The book is stitched and hardback bound in Library Buckram. The style is reminiscent of the 1970s, which is significant in that it reverberates with the death throes of Modernity and old colonial world order.
The book was produced with financial assistance from Norwich University College of the Arts, UK and was the subject of an academic paper delivered at Impact 6, International Printmaking Conference at UWE, Bristol, September 2009
8 Ways to Cook the Books is 20 pages, printed by the artist and professionally bound in an edition of 50 copies. Signed on back page.
