Letters ‘A – F’ from Gareth Long and Derek Sullivan’s ongoing project to illustrate (and translate) Flaubert’s “Dictionary of Received Ideas.” The two artists intend eventually to illustrate every entry in Flaubert’s posthumously published satirical dictionary – a text that contains 950 biting and surprisingly contemporary entries.

Long and Sullivan have worked on the Dictionary through more than a dozen illustrating sessions to date, which have included public drawing sessions at Printed Matter and Kate Werble Gallery in New York, Smack Mellon in Brooklyn, Mercer Union and Jessica Bradley Art + Projects in Toronto, and PS1 Contemporary Art Center in Queens.

They have compiled their collected illustrations to date in this bookwork.The Illustrated Dictionary of Received Ideas (Galley #5) Letters: ABCDEF includes over 100 drawings. The artists will update the book as the project progresses using on-demand printing technology.
