Artist: Mike Clements (UK)

Title: From Pyrenees to Santiago – in the Steps of Matamoros

Medium/technique(s): Ten postcards on Simili Japon 225gsm card, fan binding with pockets for postcards from mi-teintes 160gsm paper, cloth hard covers

Edition size: 1

Artist Statement: A frame story with ten instalments: a group of university friends, meeting for their annual reunion, decide that they will all take time off to walk the Camino de Santiago from the French Pyrenees and through northern Spain. Alas, one of their number is denied time off by his boss. As they begin their journey, the ten others agree that each of them will tell a story about the Camino and then send it on a postcard to console their missing friend. The linking text, in ten instalments, is written by the left-behind friend, who, coincidentally, has the same name as the maker of this artist’s book.
