Commissioned for Tatton Park Biennial 2012, this romance novella formed part of the Cartland Institute for Romance Research, a mixed media installation that explored the life and work of celebrity novelist Dame Barbara Cartland.
Throughout the publication, type was intentionally set to include various inconsistencies; a detail typical of pulp romance paperbacks. The original cover illustration referenced the style of Francis Marshall. Marshall’s work often adorned Cartland dust jackets published during the 1970s and 80s.
In addition, UHC produced screen-printed tote bags featuring a technical drawing of our key installation piece; a beautiful hand-crafted replica of The Colditz Cock. These were distributed during the Tatton Park 2012 Biennial preview event.
