Following a call for submissions A Paraphrase on a Grecian Urn I & II by bookwork artist Richard Nash was selected for the group exhibition Beyond the Book. The exhibiting works were selected and co-curated by the Guild's curator Saffron Wynne and leading bookwork artist Su Blackwell. The exhibition toured from the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, Newton Abbot, 5 April – 8 June 2014, to the Long & Ryle Gallery, London, 12 June – 17 July 2014. The group exhibition of nine artists included; Su Blackwell, Ellen Bell, Jonathan Mathew Boyd, Yvette Hawkins, Samantha Y Huang, Alexander Korzer-Robinson, Jeremy May, and Davy & Kristin McGuire. The exhibition was also tied with a symposium of the same name organised by the Guild and the University of Exeter. The exhibition initiated A Paraphrase on a Grecian Urn as an ongoing serial body of work for Nash. The first iterations, A Paraphrase on a Grecian Urn I and II (2013), were exhibited at the Devon Guild of Craftsman. A Paraphrase on a Grecian Urn III (2014) was created specifically for the Long & Ryle gallery space, and subsequently acquired by Thomas Heneage (Thomas Heneage Art Books).
