This evening


This evening, however, I am thinking of things past is twelve page concertina bound artists’ book of Gracia’s and mine. A four-colour lithographic offset print, each page has been reworked in colour pencil, adding detail to the green faces of the pair of Shell masks from Manfredo Settala’s (1600–1680) own cabinet of curiosities. On Fabriano bright white 300gsm paper, the book, an edition of twelve, is housed in a balsa wood case. It sits on a sunlit shelf in the gallery, and these are a few page details from said book.

I hope you like them, and I look forward to meeting those of you tonight attending our bookbinding workshop.

Thanks to both Gracia and Louise for a great class. I love the art of bookbinding and whilst I have been drifting for a while, the class has given me new inspiration to get motivated again.
