Judith Thurman and Julia Farrer have collaborated to produce this homage to the memory of their friend, Kate Griffin. A visually stunning production from this collaboration of author and artist.

Julia Farrer, born in London in 1950, attended The Slade School from 1968-1972 and was a Harkness Fellow at the University of New Mexico and New York from 1974-1976. Her work is held in many important collections, including the Arts Council of Great Britain, the Ashmoleon Museum of Oxford University, the Yale Center for British Art, the Tate Gallery, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her recent work explores transformations of geometric compositions from two into three dimensions, across the different media of painting, monoprinting, unique and small run artist’s books.
