Richard Long and Aggie Weston

First of all you must know that Aggie Weston comes from a work by Kurt Schwiters ” A SMALL HOME FOR SEAMEN”. It is told that Agnes Weston founded seamens’s homes and this name was used by Coracle press for their art magazine publication. Coracle hoped that this magazine provides some refuge for lesser known artist.

This brings me to Richard Long who was, at that time, by no means a lesser name, but Richard Long was nevertheless invited to contribute to this  No. 16 Winter 1979 number.

Beautifully published with excellent print quality makes this a perfect collectable artist book.

The book is only 16 pages with text, walks and photography by Richard Long, but should not be missed by any Richard Long or artist book collector. This is a Coracle publication from 1979 and contains beside the Richard Long texts. Photographs on:

A Line in England Yorkshire 1977

Stones in Wales   Castell y Gwynt 1979

A circle in Africa  Mulanje Mountain Malawi 1978
