Amir Steinberg is a visual communications student from Germany, his visualisation of Red Riding Hood 'Ladle Rat Rotten Hut' which is a version of "Little Red Riding Hood" re-written with similar-sounding words substituting for the original folk tale, as part of an ersatz language called Anguish Languish.
The collages are based on the odd words used for the characters' names and descriptions (for example, "groin murder" instead of "grandmother" which meant the inclusion of wonderfully surreal elements like bottles of ketchup, butter and floppy discs.
The book was printed using Cyanotype and Linocut in a palette of red and blue.

I have been leading a program of printmaking lessons using materials that are cheap and readily available for over a year now. I never quite know who is going to turn up and try to make it as accessible and fun as possible. Last week was the first week of a new term and I had started with potatoes I use lino cutters and craft knives to score and cut the flesh, and especially when overlapping them in different colours the results can be very sophisticated despite the primitiveness of the medium.
Today I have time to play for the first time in months and I returned to the ongoing challenge of 'Little Red', my muse for fun and experimentation.
