"This book is a collaboration between groups of artists at Manchester Metropolitan University (Made Collective) and the University of the West of England, Bristol working from research gathered around an overarching theme of 'Surplus to Requirements'. The artists have produced a creative response to two diverse collections in their respective cities, the Bookbarn in Bristol and the Herbarium at Manchester Museum prompting questions that such collections may raise about the past and propose for the future.
