Artist Notes:

During my four years in England, 1976-1980, I found the popularity of newsstands an enjoyable facet of daily life. They were everywhere. To pass the time on their daily commtes and journies, people had access to news and entertainment from all over Europe. Buying periodicals was a daily ritual, that unified all travelers.

For this work, I had created a number of drawings of readers and vendors. In the orginal 1979 watermedia painting, I collaged stamps onto the painting, and painted on them to create the different covers.
