The Red Headed League

£4.00

The Red Headed League is an artists book, created as a project by Michael Day and Lesley Guy (as Furlough). It was inspired by the Sherlock Holmes story The Adventure of the Red-Headed League and employed the services of thirteen red-headed artists to respond to entries from the Encyclopedia Britannica. In keeping with the spirit of Jabes Wilson’s original task from the short story I set about with an enclyclopedia, carbon paper and pen to copy out the original entry.
