This is yet another find from the Arnolfini bookshop.
This book was made to accompany the Tate’s exhibition of British Folk Art. While the Tate exhibition is over, the objects are now on show at Compton Verney, which holds a large collection of Folk Art.
The book is appealing in so many ways. The objects are beautiful, surprising and sometimes unsettling.

The objects also speak of a rich art tradition which is often overlooked by galleries, and which surely deserves further attention and a wider audience.
