Kathryn Joseph & Rhian Nicolas ‘The Blood’
A3 letterpress print, red wine
these blood words were typed as they came out and some had changed when the song was done. it made me feel better to look at them and when the newspaper of words for the first record was being made I couldn’t find them and so I feel like they were waiting to be used for something else and I love the glad cafe and every human part of and I love Rhian Nicholas so I am very very happy to be part of and so are my creepy words and stains. - Kathryn Joseph
Rhian Nicolas on their collaboration ‘A scrumpled sheet of words and crossings out on plain A4, almost lost, but thank goodness not. I love to see process, how something came into being. This little glimpse of Kathryn Joseph’s creative process stuck with me, she showed me a picture of it a few years back. When we were asked if we would like to collaborate, it immediately came to mind and felt like it should be the basis for our Glad edition. Raw, honest and brave.’
