StampDuty with Lilla and Meg

A creative space to meet and share, explore and play

Inside John Bull Printing Outfit No.9 there is a tin box full of tiny rubber letters and a line of letters placed in a wooden holder. I ink up the letters in the holder and press it into a piece of wood to reveal the word 'Acceptance' and so the rest of StampDuty is a cathartic expression of acceptance with fields of numbers and unspoken characters, cows and pigs, dogs and milkmaids all choo choo chewing from the southern trains.
