I make artist’s books that explore the book as an art object. The making of the book, its structure and content form the narrative. It is an open-ended process in which I enjoy playing with the idea of the book, its story, its images and finally the object itself.
I am currently making a limited edition of a book using letterpress and drypoint etching. The book features text by James Joyce from the final paragraph of his short story “The Dead”.
This is the first in a series of books that will feature the final page of famous novels. The book is shaped like a bookmark and will fold out as an accordion book.
