Archive Annotations: Billy Childish Medway Prison Hulk Woodcuts

Archive Annotations are a series of sporadic and incomplete anecdotes regarding past L-13 releases, oddities and rejects which are dug up from the vaults to be paraded about and subsequently DISPOSED OF via the archive section of the site shop.
Usually these are unique items, limited numbers from a long sold-out edition or unreleased experiments.
Once they are sold and their fate is sealed in a private collection these annotations will remain as reference to their existence.

Woodcuts by Billy Childish from 2011.

Three woodcuts made for the cover of The Medway Prison Hulk, a book we published for Billy’s friend and local historian Keith Gulvin.

These woodcuts featured on the front cover, back cover and endpapers of the book and are Artists Proofs from a small edition we made to help fund the publication.

One colour woodcut on Somerset Buff Velvet paper.

38 x 28 cm

Signed, dated and marked A/P by the artist
