Gillian Taylor - Bundle
Postcards have been used to communicate all sorts of messages, from love to instructions to pay bills. My collections are made up of fragments of postcards from as early as 1900.
Gillian Taylor - Japanese mulberry papers
There are all sorts of these papers. People choose the colours and patterns they like.
I make collections of tiny envelopes using different kinds of papers including Japanese hand-printed papers, maps, books, music, chocolate wrappers and old postcards. I'm interested in how we communicate and how that has changed over the years. Handwritten letters from friends used to arrive in envelopes, but now it’s mostly bills and bumph. The collections are also inspired by my interest in insects.
