gorse No. 10 on The RTÉ Book Show

I was a guest on Sunday's (18 November) RTÉ Book Show on RTÉ Radio 1, where I spoke about gorse No. 10 as part of an episode presented by Sara Baume and dedicated to artists' books.

gorse 10 is the latest edition of @gorse_journal and this one comes in a box. The editor @c_makris shows Sara what's inside....coasters, stickers, pamphlets, sealed envelopes, photography (including some of Sara's own work!) and documents. It's an homage to Marcel Duchamp. — BookShowRTE (@BookShowRTE) November 18, 2018
Other guests on Sunday's edition were David Crowley of the National College of Art and Design, Jamie Murphy of The Salvage Press, Katie Blackwood of the National Irish Visual Archive Library, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios director Cliodhna Shaffrey, and artist Alan Phelan.

You can read a full description of the episode on the show's website, where you can also listen back to it. Or you can do so on SoundCloud:
