A Book DUNKED Into SOME Tea

by (with Katie Buckley)
 

about the first edition of this book:

The sequel to 'A Book Thrown Into The Sea' (1991), namely: 'A BOOK DUNKED INTO SOME TEA' was suggested by, and made with, my friend Katie Buckley in the same year. An edition of 15 was assembled and dunked for a short period, with all books signed by Katie and myself as participants in the event.

A second edition is planned for release in 2020/21
A Book Dunked Into Some Tea by Paul Ramsay
Thrown Texts Series 002

The back of the book gave the classification of this work as 'Painting'.

All of the bookworks were prepared with the usual Alembic Books format of the time with numbered, but otherwise blank, pages. These were then placed all together in a very large teapot, in a variety of orientations, for a short while.

As with the Sea Book, these publications upon completion were added to the Alembic canon and sold; a few remain in my possession as examples of the second Alembic thrown text.
