Nick Bantock invites you to take a class in aesthetic curiosity. Urgent 2nd Class is an inspirational handbook for making art by embellishing and tampering with old documents, maps, postcards, scraps, envelopes, and other easy-to-find and inexpensive ephemera. Written in Bantock's ebullient, intimate prose and featuring hundreds of his own charming pieces, Urgent 2nd Class shows how to alchemically transform the unexpected into your own idiosyncratic art and is an ingenious handbook to free-flowing visual creativity for all skill levels."If I can help other artists find their personal species of outsider art, maybe we'll further widen the eyes of all those who take delight in the visual world." -Introduction, Urgent 2nd Class
