The Les Coleman Bequest of Publications and Printed Matter

During the summer I will be adding the titles from the Les Coleman Bequest to the library catalogue. After his death in 2013, Les’s family very kindly donated approximately 180 artists’ publications to our special collection, some created by Les and many others collected by him from the annual Small Publishers Fair. His friend and colleague at In House Publishing, Charlie Holmes, suggested this image as a symbol for the bequest. It was originally published in Unthoughts and within this collection is “the only work that exists as an object, a photograph and a drawing”. It will be included in each new catalogue entry.
