The Sausage Atlas by Andrew Towse and Anne-Marie Atkinson

A beautiful and brilliant publication celebrating a great British lunch, an artistic collaboration and the cafes of Leeds.  ‘The Sausage Atlas’ was commissioned by Leeds 2023 as a sculptural installation but also led to this amazing book.

Anne-Marie Atkinson and Andrew Towse worked together for three years.  Every day, Andrew bought, photographed and ate a sausage sandwich for his lunch.

For the BEYOND Festival 2018 the two artists created a monumental sculpture containing images of 252 different individual sausage sandwiches displayed in 21 3D cubes. For the first week of the Festival, the 21 cubes were displayed together in Kirkgate Market food hall.  In the second half of the Festival Anne-Marie and Andrew took the individual cubes back to the cafes from which the sausage sandwiches had come.

The book includes photos and a map of cafes across Leeds, photos of the sculptural installation at Kirkgate Market and in the cafes and an essay by Anne-Marie reflecting on the artists’ shared experience.
