All humans 'are books of blood—wherever you open us, we're red' (Clive Barker). If our bodies are books of blood, then they can be read; we invite such readings and contributions where blood is the signifier. We are also interested in analyses and representation of the literal presence of blood in our culture, the importance of the actual material substance of life itself. This is the first stage of a funding bid and collaborative project on blood for the Wellcome Trust http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/Wellcome-Trust-websites/index.htm.
