LINTEL is a UK journal published by Corbel Stone Press which combines the work of contemporary artists with selections from old texts, printed in A4 format on heavyweight, uncoated papers. The journal is published in two editions, a ‘Standard Edition’, which comprises the journal itself, and an artist-directed ‘Special Edition’, which includes additional material in a special presentation portfolio.
VOL 1 NO 1 features drawings by Hans Brückner and text selections adapted from ‘Travels In Iceland’, an early 19th century text by Olafsen and Povelsen.
Hans Brückner was born in Würzburg, Germany, in 1963. He studied Fine Art at the Frankfurt Städelschule, Icelandic at Reykjavik and Linguistics at Erlangen. He currently lives in Munich.
When he was climbing the Hekla volcano in Iceland, the sight of its vast, almost empty landscape made a deep impression. The moment he realised that it was impossible to create an image that could contain such enormous spaces, he felt relieved. Since then most of his artwork has been based on the idea of being a fragment – of drawing space within space.
For the inaugural August issue, Hans has made five new A4 drawings to accompany the series displayed in the journal. A special edition of five will therefore be available, comprising:
An A4+ card portfolio with paste-on cover plate
An original signed A4 artwork by Hans Brückner
A limited edition A4 reproduction of one the drawings from the journal, printed on 425gsm aquarelle paper
Four limited edition A5 b&w prints of the Icelandic landscape by Hans Brückner, printed on 425gsm aquarelle paper
Lintel Vol 1 No 1, A4, 28pp journal
A limited edition A6 art postcard
A colophon card
(Five original A4 artworks by Hans Brückner – each available with one of five copies of the LINTEL Special Edition)
(Photographic prints of Iceland by Hans Brückner – available with the Special Edition of LINTEL)
LINTEL is published in early August, but is available to pre-order now for the introductory price of £7.99 + p&p.
