Oldham: Incline Press, 2005. folio. cloth, patterned paper-covered boards, portfolio, slipcase. (iv), 242, (2) pages. 2 volumes. Limited to an edition of 350 copies designed and letterpress printed by Graham Moss and Kathy Whalen on bespoke Magnani paper. The author was one of Peggy Angus' students. "The title of our book, Art for Life, is taken from a prospectus she prepared advertising her Community Art School at the Camden Studio Workshops in the 1970s and sums up Peggy's belief that art was as much about birthday cakes and bonfire celebrations as it was about museums. As those who knew her will appreciate, Peggy's output is much too large to be contained between the covers of a simple book. The pages are filled with photos, reproductions and prints. The book needs to be specially housed. In consultation with Stephen Conway, a slip case has been devised to hold the book and a specially-designed portfolio. This will contain four facsimile sketchbooks and a CD of Peggy taken from the tapes Carolyn made while working on the book with her. On the CD are a few of her stories of life in the 1940s, opening and, of course, Peggy singing Raggle Taggle Gypsy O." ( from the Incline Press website) Altogether a wonderful production celebrating a remarkable woman.
