UNSEEN WORKS FROM THE NORTH WING of the Widjimorphup Shire Art Gallery

ART BOOK : PUBLISHED 1990

A fine art book produced in 1990, containing a selection of Pericles’ paintings , prints, kites and other projects from this period.

There are only 2 of these exhibition books left for sale, and both from the original 1990 printing. All units are in good condition with some light markings on the cover.

The portable, printed, written and illustrated object called a book is loved by all.

From my early youth I have delighted in books. Not only for the information gleaned from them but for the intrinsic physical and design qualities of each volume. The romance of the antique, leather bound books with their quaint type, cotton-based papers and often hand-coloured engravings are a great source of pleasure to me. Every book is a portable time capsule which can be recalled at any point in time.

Today, I feel the four-colour lithographic process is one of the world’s greatest inventions. When combined with other contemporary technical advancements it has added a dimension which results in a printed image of great excitement and beauty.

These magical qualities have led me to produce books which I like to regard as art works in their own right. I have enjoyed producing this compact time capsule of my art, and hope it will bring pleasure and enjoyment to those who journey into it.

This book serves as a medium of thanks to the many people and friends who have helped me in my very fortunate life as an artist.

Leon Pericles, 1990
