Tanya Peixoto & Alastair Brotchie


This publication takes a newspaper format since the 28 “secular ex-voto paintings” by Tanya Peixoto depicted in it take their subject matter from news items over a period of approximately two years. These are accompanied by a brief history of traditional ex-voto paintings by Alastair Brotchie, which traces their origins as a pre-Christian tradition in the classical period, to their adoption by the Catholic Church and their gradual assumption of the protocols of tabloid journalism in modern times. Published in 2012 to coincide with celebrations for the 10th anniversary of Bookartbookshop in London.
