In March 2017, umlaut.. hosted the book launch of Bricks from the Kiln #2.
Deeply engaged with the complex world of visual communication, the second issue of this UK-based journal edited by Andrew Lister & Matthew Stuart (Traven T. Croves) includes pieces on the sound-film work of Daphne Oram and Geoffrey Jones, monuments to Kazimir Malevich, Rosa Luxemburg and Walter Benjamin; the relocation of a defunct bookshop from Amsterdam to Epsom; and Agatha Christie smoking Asger Jorn's cigar.
The issue pulls together amputated visual elements, short-form writing, distant sounds from the Lesser Antilles, and autobio-anecdotes.
Bricks from the Kiln #2 is bound with 'signature-wrap' prints bookending each eight-page section. Each copy comes complete with an inserted index and afterword in a screen-printed PVC dust jacket.
