**RESCHEDULED: Note new date, time and venue**

In this talk, Graham Rawle traces thirty years of working in collage, particularly focussing on his Woman's World project, which has taken him from illustration to literature and more recently to film. He will also touch on such diverse topics as industrial camouflage, Hollywood set design, and why dogs are funnier than cats.

Graham Rawle is a writer, artist and designer. His popular series 'Lost Consonants' ran in the Weekend Guardian for 15 years. His collaged novel, Woman's World, created entirely from fragments of found text clipped from vintage women's magazines was described by The Times as 'a work of genius'. His interpretation of The Wizard of Oz was named 2009 Book of the Year at the British Book Design Awards, and his novel The Card was shortlisted for the 2013 Writers'Guild Best Book Award. Rawle lives in London and teaches at the University of Brighton. He is Visiting Professor of Illustration at Falmouth University and Norwich University of the Arts where in 2012 he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate for services to design.
