About Printed in Norfolk

For more than 35 years, Coracle has produced artists’ books, critical works, editions and ephemera. Printed in Norfolk was a 2012 touring exhibition and catalogue that told the story of this key contemporary small press in all its manifestations as printer, publisher, bookshop and gallery.

The emphasis was on the period 1992 to 2012, when Coracle directors, Simon Cutts (poet, artist, curator and editor) and Erica Van Horn (artist and writer) were making books with Norfolk printers Crome and Akers in Kings Lynn, and binder, Stuart Settle in Fakenham.

Printed in Norfolk toured to The Gallery at NUCA (Norwich University College of the Arts) in Norwich, Site Gallery in Sheffield, Shandy Hall in north Yorkshire and the Saison Poetry Library at the Southbank Centre, in London.

The exhibition was organised by Coracle in collaboration with Arts and Heritage Adviser and Project Manager Helen Mitchell and RGAP (Research Group for Artists Publications).

Printed in Norfolk was funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Henry Moore Foundation, The Elephant Trust and Norfolk County Council.

camouflaged by whitewash and thatch.
