The first issue, "The Fold" has been on display at the Bluecoat in Liverpool and has also had an outing to the Manchester Artists' Book Fair and the BABE (Bristol Artists' Book Event) at the Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol. Mercy have named Cardboard Folly as one of their top five collaborative projects on Creative Times, which is lovely. The research for issue one was done during a residency at the Cooperative space (of which Mercy was a partner in) during Liverpool Biennial. Made entirely possible by Rachel Birtles, this issue really should be dedicated to her memory.
