The ‘Standing Heads’ illustrated adorn the stone balustrade staircase of Palazzo Soranzo Van Axel in Venice. These sculpted heads form part of the handrail or ‘corrimano’ which translates as ‘running hand’ of which this artist’s book represents a walk up and down. ‘A Walk Past Standing Heads’ is a tribute to Richard Long’s seminal publication, ‘A Walk Past Standing Stones’ (Coracle Press for Anthony d’Offay Gallery, 1980), one of the very first, and very influential, artists’ books to feature in my personal collection.
