David Shrigley presents... Pulped Fiction
Publisher: Shrig Books Author: George Orwell

This publication is a project by visual artist David Shrigley entitled ‘Pulped Fiction’. 

In George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, a totalitarian regime known as the party controls every aspect of its citizens’ lives, manipulating their thoughts and erasing their individuality. The story follows Winston Smith, a disillusioned party member who rebels against the oppressive regime, risking his life in the pursuit of freedom and truth. 

The novel is as relevant today as it was when it was first published in 1950. 

Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code was first published in 2003 and is one of the best-selling novels of all time.

This book has been made almost entirely from recycled used copies of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code.

Small fragments of the original text are still visible on each page. The cover and dust jacket have been repurposed from the original hardback special edition.

As a result the evidence of wear and tear on both the hard cover and the dust jacket are traces of use and therefore are an integral part of the project.

Each book has been signed and numbered by David Shrigley and includes a signed and numbered screen-print.
