Down the eye-straining strip-lit isles yule wander – you can grab anything you want for your festive stocking

Artist Michael St.Mark’s published artwork … & Artist Michael Landy’s book cover 2 months later

*NB Although admittedly in general use, still, is this yet another bizarre “co-incidence” or example of unscrupulous theft by an established artist from works featured on 691. Never before seen as the central focus in an artwork, then 2 months on being used for the first time as sole use for a book cover by another artist. You decide.
Book title and its cover design (above) by artist Michael Landy, published 21.10.08 ( just two months after this London Dada work was uploaded to the internet ).. ” Everything Must Go!“. ( link below)
