This bookwork was proposed and accepted for the Floating Library events on Silver Lake in Silverwood Park, St. Anthony, Minnesota, U.S.A. in July/August of 2015.
Thrown Texts Series 003
Copies of 'A BOOK DIPPED INTO TWO LAKES' were dipped into Meldon Reservoir Lake in Dartmoor, England on July 2015, with this event being witnessed by artist Steve Thorpe.
These books were then posted to the organisers for use in the Floating Library where they were subject to contact with the water of Silver Lake as the books were borrowed—so that the readers fulfilled the title.
Two of the six books have been kept by the Floating Library and the remaining four returned to the UK to be placed in Plymouth University library and other archives (including my own).
Poet-in-residence Steve Healey and Floating Library founder Sarah Peters
