Elms Lesters Painting Rooms: The Book(s)

Elms Lesters Painting Rooms book, designed by Iain Cadby, is limited to just 1000 copies and comes in a numbered box
Eliza Williams’ feature in the current (February) issue of Creative Review takes a look at London’s Elms Lesters gallery, which regularly exhibits works by artists who learnt their trade on the streets. Recent exhibitions in the central London space have shown work by the likes of Adam Neate, Phil Frost, Futura, José Parlá, Mark Dean Veca, Stash, WK Interact, Delta and Space Invader.
Paul Jones and Fiona McKinnon, the duo that run Elms Lesters galllery, have been working closely with graphic designer Iain Cadby, of Worlds studio, for the past two years. Cadby has designed the just-launched 502-page Elms Lesters Painting Rooms book which celebrates the gallery’s 25th anniversary by cataloguing 17 exhibitions from the last 12 years. And Cadby has also been designing the gallery’s exhibition catalogues for the last year. Read on for CR’s interview with Cadby about his work with the gallery…
