Lint - Paolozzi Tribute
From Steve Aylett, author of the peerless Lint, we receive news of a recently-discovered Jeff Lint tribute.
Eduardo Paolozzi, the famous sculptor and artist, was apparently a great fan of Lint's work, taking inspiration from books including Jelly Result and One Less Bastard when creating such iconic works as the British Library's Newton, after William Blake, and the proto-Pop I was a Rich Man's Plaything.
However, surely Paolozzi's greatest work is that most derived from Lint's work, and shown above: a representation of The Caterer, Jeff Lint's most baffling creation, in his famous mosaics at Tottenham Court Road Station.
