Printed Lies is a reproduction in book format of the 2016 Vote Leave campaign video, Which NHS will you vote for?
Screen grabs from the video are reproduced in a print publication with its own ISBN number to be kept in perpetuity at the British Library.
Printed Lies is compiled by Roelof Bakker of Negative Press London. In his brief essay he states, “I never imagined I would publish a book of hatred, of lies, but here it is.”
Reviewing Printed Lies for The New European, Steve Anglesey calls the book “a devastating work” and writes, “I’m not sure I’ve read a more compelling illustration of why Leave won than Printed Lies.…it could be this deceitful, hateful, shameful, piece of work was the Brexiteers most effective weapon in establishing and promoting the untruth which won the referendum.”

Nicholas Royle (text) and David Gledhill (paintings)
East Germany, the Cold War. A doctor’s daughter experiments with her father’s camera and eavesdrops on his consultations.
In their paintings and fiction, David Gledhill and Nicholas Royle explore the nature of surveillance.
The project began when David Gledhill obtained a 1950s East German family album from a Frankfurt flea market and subsequently turned these domestic snapshots into large-scale oil paintings. He then invited Nicholas Royle to collaborate and contribute fiction inspired by the family album paintings.
