Friday Night Flicks: Tom Phillips

The world lost Tom Phillips on November 28, 2022. One of his best known works is undoubtedly A Humument — the result of fifty years of altering the pages of a Victorian novel. In this video, Phillips talks a little about the work.



If you would like to spend a small part of your weekend learning more about the work, here’s an article written a decade ago by Adam Smyth for the London Review of Books. If you’d like to spend more time with the pages themselves, there’s a full set of images on Phillips website.

About Byopia Press

I have been working in the book arts field for more than thirty years, and operating Byopia Press with my husband David since the late 1990s. I began producing artist's books and altered books in 2004. I also create prints and drawings that are frequently text-inspired or text-based.
