David Shrigley | No Junk Mail
No Junk Mail
Toronto, Canada: Paul + Wendy Projects, 2014
13 x 13 cm.
Edition of 100 (+12 APs) signed and numbered copies
An overly earnest sign commanding No Junk Mail always seems worse than actual junk mail, so this David Shrigley work is the perfect functional multiple.
The porcelain enamel on steel sign is the most recent (23rd) edition from Paul + Wendy projects, who have also published prints, books and multiples by The Royal Art Lodge, Kay Rosen, Jonathan Monk, Micah Lexier, Maggie Groat, Daniel Eatock, Derek Sullivan and many others. The sign is housed in a cardboard box and is accompanied by a letterpress card with the artists signature. It's available from the publishers, here, for $250 CDN., while supplies last.
