Almanacs were a collaborative print project by Patrick Walker, Alan Cocks and Mick Marston. Working under the alter ego of Fine n Dandy the trio invited writer David Bartholomew to pen an encyclopedic array of text. Taking a day and noting its relevance across different years, the Almanacs presented a history of the world out of sequence, one date at a time. Spanning from the 5th of February 1889 to the industrial revolution, each of the Almanacs juxtaposed ground breaking events with mundane observations from across the centuries.

Continuing a layering of obscure association Marston’s screen printed illustrations masked and revealed aspects of the eclectic text – a visual episteme of integrated, albeit atypical, knowledge.
