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.

Compare and contrast at Steve Aylett's website, of find out more about Jeff Lint at his Wikipedia page.  

The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
