The choice of mirror board for the cover of DR.ME's 10-year retrospective is a good one: a time to reflect - on friendship, collaboration, independence, innovation, and a body of work that really does blow you away. This new book, beautifully published on their own Waiting Room Press imprint, is a 560-page monster, featuring every project that the duo (Ryan Doyle and Mark 'Eddy' Edwards) have ever worked on - all poured out here in a deluge of collaged, xeroxed, daubed, photographed and digitised delights.
An object that truly captures the pioneering spirit of its creators, from the cleverly considered contents pages to the five zine inserts that are scattered throughout. Look and you will find behind-the-scenes photographs, posters, publications, record sleeves, esoterica, personal projects and exhibition ephemera.
Trippy, baffling, funny, original, playful and, as you'd expect if you've come across their work before, completely engrossing. This is a whole world, it is DR.ME's world, and we should feel happy to be here to look upon its mystifying and enigmatic surfaces.
