Transmission Annual - London book launch

We have a new artwork called, 'Seventeen Messages' in this lovely book, which is being launched in London next week.  Here's the blurb:

Artwords Press is delighted to announce the publication of Transmission Annual. Hospitality and invites you to the London launch party on Thursday 11th November from 6.30 to 8.30 p.m. at Artwords Bookshop, 20–22 Broadway Market, Hackney, London E8 9QJ, UK

Transmission is the act of passing something on, via a channel. One might make a list of ways of transmission, including wisdom, enlightenment, education, messages sent over a distance through electrical or electronic means, and disease (which has both locus and route). In transmission, there is a move from one to another, and each may be changed in the move, in the encounter. Transmission Annual has followed a theme, that of hospitality, and as a theme it has no rules other than those of hospitality (to honour the guest, the stranger and the friend). Transmission Annual draws on broad horizons, wide paths, and diverse fields.
