This is a celebration of the joys of reading. In 2002 I was building a mosaic mural in a hospital in Nairobi. Almost every day on my way to the workshop I would meet this young girl who was usually reading the Beano as she waited for her school bus. I did a couple of drawings from memory, and have placed a figure like her in a couple of mosaic murals. Recently I decided she should star in her own print. This is a reduction lino-cut in several colours, carved from a single piece of old flooring salvaged from a skip in Finsbury Park. The fact that lino was ancient and battered gave rise to many unexpected textures and effects.
