Monographica is published quarterly by papermakers Tullis Russell, printed on Mellotex by Gavin Martin, and put together by Alan Fletcher.


'These facades were constructed with a variety of pens and pencils on various papers by different methods.

Dip-pens, rollerballs, ballpoints, fibre-tips, soft pencils, hard leads. Coarse cartridge, smooth cold press, handmade papers, laid and wove stock, blotting paper.

I also introduce constraints. For example drawing a facade upside-down or back-to-front really concentrates the mind.

The buildings were loosely copied from postcards, photographs, travel books and other visual references. No travel expenditure, no problems with inclement weather.

The objective was to reverse the architectural process by reducing volume to line, to convert three dimensions into two, to flatten space.'

Alan Fletcher, London 2006
