To celebrate the release of Sarah Lucas and Olivier Garbay's publication The Mug, Other Criteria held a book launch last week in the Hinde Street shop. Alongside the book, we displayed LOVE IS A BIRD LOVE IS A BURDEN in the full array of ten colours and had a selection of mugs for sale.
Thanks to everyone who attended, it was a great night and here are some snippets from the evening...

The Mug is a collaborative project exploring Lucas and Garbay’s working methods. Designed in the style of an alphabetised address book, it catalogues their thoughts and ideas, mixing free-form Anglo-Gallic poetry with various artistic experiments, dabbling in dirt, dominoes, and drinking.

In conjunction with the opening of our second shop, we are hosting a launch of The Mug on Thursday 19th February 2009 at the new shop from 6.00 - 8.00pm. We look forward to seeing you there for the book signing:

Lucas and Garbay have also created a special limited edition sculpture in coloured resin, LOVE IS A BIRD LOVE IS A BURDEN, which will go on sale from 19th February 2009 to coincide with the publication of The Mug. Please click here for further product information.
T-shirts are also available for sale.
