Art Against Knives
Print for the London charity Art Against Knives under the theme 'Made in London'. The Vulgar Tongue comes from the title of the book 'Grose's Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue – 1785'.
Grose took midnight walks through London, picking up slang words in slums, drinking dens and dockyards and adding them into their 'knowledge-box'. The obelisk/dagger symbolises the death of the language.
