Marion Smith’s artworks for Bishopbriggs and Cadder explore the creative legacy of the Villafield Press, a printing house which was part of the publishing firm Blackie and Son. The Glasgow School of Art Library holds a large collection of works by this press in their Talwin Morris Collection, Morris was Blackie’s influential Art Director. Marion used a number of books in the collection for research, looking not only at Morris’ characteristic Glasgow Style but also the production techniques behind the books themselves. This resulted in two works, which draw on Morris’ distinctive aesthetic while applying it to radically divergent mediums. Villafield Trilogy, located beside the Forth & Clyde Canal adjacent to the pathway close to Cadder, draws on Morris’ cover for ‘A Very Odd Girl’. One side of the work depicts the same colour scheme used in Morris’ cover, sandblasted and painted into a slim block of granite, shaped to suggest a book. The other side contrasts in style and is based on Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s thistle motif from the library at Hillhouse in Helensburgh. The idea for the artwork grew from the discovery that Talwin Morris introduced his boss Walter Blackie to Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and from this introduction came the commission for the celebrated Hillhouse. Marion led workshops in Meadowburn Primary School, which stands on the site of what was once Villafield Press. Each of the pupils had the opportunity to make their own book, complete with a Talwin Morris inspired jacket design.
