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

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.

In 2017 a charity bookshop in Swansea, UK made headline news as a result of exhibiting several hundred copies of the book with a sign requesting that no more be donated as almost no one wanted to buy them.

This publication is a project by visual artist David Shrigley entitled ‘Pulped Fiction’. It has been created by pulping unwanted paperback copies of The Da Vinci Code and making them into paper. 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.

Each book has been signed and numbered by David Shrigley and includes a signed and numbered screen-print. Small fragments of the original novel's text are still visible on each page and the typeface chosen for the edition has carefully been selected to match the type used for The Da Vinci Code's first edition.

Please expect delays over the Christmas period. All orders will be processed and dispatched within 7 working days.
