Bastards is an artists’ book, designed by Hayley Newman and Fraser Muggeridge on the occasion of Newman's exhibition Tongue-tied at Matt's Gallery, 2019. The book, initially written in one session as an act of personal catharsis, asks the reader not to look away but instead to linger within its pages, inhabit the book and be a witness to its words. Newman's deeply honest and vulnerable text is published in solidarity with all survivors of the abuse of power. It is part of an incidental archive of over 500 drawings, watercolours, texts and knitted textiles made by Hayley Newman since June 2018, all of which trace personal responses to a time of uncertainty and turbulence.
