LINTEL is a UK journal which combines the work of contemporary artists with selections from old texts, printed in A4 format on heavyweight, uncoated papers. The journal is published in two editions, a 'Standard Edition', which comprises the journal itself, and an artist-directed 'Special Edition', which includes additional material in a special presentation portfolio.
VOL 2 NO 1 features drawings by Richard Skelton and text selections adapted from 'A Glossary of Words used in East Anglia' by Walter Rye, published in 1895.
The drawings featured in this volume of LINTEL were made on the Suffolk coast in December 2013, during heavy tidal surges - the most violent for over half a century. Towns and villages all along the coast received flood warnings, and many were prepared for evacuation. Land around the mouth of the Alde was inundated with sea water - defences were breached, reed-beds were flattened and fields were flooded. There were also reports that some farm animals had died.
A special edition of thirteen will be available, comprising:
An archival box with paste-on cover plate
One of the thirteen signed original drawings featured in the journal
Four limited edition reproductions of the drawings
