Bill Drummond swears by his Black n Red. Apparently part of what led Annie Leibovitz to the edge of financial ruin was importing her’s from Europe by courier. A few days ago I nipped out to get an A4 school exercise book. This can only mean one thing, a new show is on the horizon. This book has squares rather than lines. I don’t think that will be evident in the finished show, but it is apt as the piece is commissioned by Domaine d’O (alongside Birmingham City Council) and I always associate squared exercise books with French schools for some reason lost in my childhood.
