Ambit Covers

Wandering the deepest reaches of Crouch End library on monday, I stumbled across an exhibition of Ambit covers. Ambit is a long-running magazine of poetry, art, reviews and short stories that has been Art Edited by illustrator/author Michael Foreman since the 60s. The cover images are often provided by up-and-coming young artists, including the likes of David Hockney and Ralph Steadman in earlier years. 

The prints are spread out around the walls of a giant hall in a seemingly random arrangement of wonky angles. A slightly strange but interesting exhibition.
