Now this is genius!! The main man @davidshrigley latest adventure see’s him publishing or should we say re-publishing George Orwell’s 1984 book made with pulped copies of Dan Brown’s Davinci Code 🤣🤣🤣 here’s a bit about the story behind the project and what to expect 🫶🏼

“It's a beautiful thing; the destruction of words” says David

In 2017, a charity bookshop in Swansea made headline news as a result of exhibiting several hundred copies of Dan Brown's 2003 novel 'The Da Vinci Code' in its window with a sign requesting that no more copies of the book be donated as they had more than they could sell.

'Pulped Fiction' is a project by visual artist David Shrigley, who has produced a limited run of 1,250 copies of George Orwell's dystopian novel 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' made entirely from the pulped remains of unwanted copies of 'The Da Vinci Code'.

The project will be launched at a special pop-up weekend hosted at the very charity shop in Swansea that started it all. With a private view starting Tonight at 5PM UK BST

250 copies of the limited new edition of 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' will be on sale for an exclusive price, with remaining copies going on sale on his website after the event.

Alongside the books, the artist is releasing a 30-minute documentary telling the story of how the project came to be and the numerous hurdles his studio faced along the way. During the launch weekend, there will be free hourly screenings of the documentary at Swansea’s Volcano Theatre.

The screening is free to attend, but a pre-booked ticket is required.

A Brucey bonus for all collectors too as the book comes with a limited edition print too!!!
