One last work from Peter Coates--his contribution to last year's 'Black Page' exhibition at Shandy Hall (Laurence Sterne's home in Coxwold, Yorkshire). The exhibition marked the 250th anniversary of the first publication of Tristram Shandy, with its infamous black page announcing the death of Parson Yorick. Coates's stone black page was installed next to Sterne's own memorial in the adjacent graveyard of St. Michael's, Coxwold.
