This print has been designed exclusively for the Whitworth by Sarah-Joy Ford to accompany the (Un)Defining Queer exhibition.
This pattern design is featured in the border of Ford's banner quilt in the exhibition. The pattern was created in partnership with the (Un)Defining Queer constituent group. The artist and group came together for a creative session to write and illustrate A Queer Manifesto. With the designs created by the group, Ford has used their illustrations as inspiration for the collaborative Queer Manifesto Design.
The pattern design is printed onto quality paper stocks by King&Mcgaw, who are leading experts in fine art print publishing based in Sussex.
