Published on the occasion of Armitt Museum and Library's centenary for Sublime Transactions, this book is the artist's response to the archive of The Fell & Rock Climbing Club (FRCC) of the English Lake District. The book appropriates text from a collection of mountaineering memoirs in the FRCC archives, held in the Armitt Library in Ambleside. These books are first-hand accounts of expeditions in the English Lakes, the Alps, the Himalayas and further afield, from the Victorian era to the present day. Alpine Spoilers contains an edit of the last paragraphs from over 500 books in which the author summarises the experience and creates a poignant finale.
120 pages, black and white illustrations.
Paperback, printed and bound by Ditto Press, published by the author: 2012
