Additional notes:
Pocket Drawings is made up of forty-five panels of drawings by William Kentridge. The drawings were printed onto scanned book pages from Baedeker's L'Italie des Alpes a Naples, 1926 and were then pasted onto a cotton backing so that the panels fold up into a small document that is placed in a handmade and hand printed box. It was produced in an edition of 25 plus proofs in 2015.

The colophon, on a separate page at the bottom of the box, states that there are 63 panels (rather than the actual 45) and when I asked Mark Attwood, the printer, he said "mathematics is not usually an attribute of artists." jmg
