Two of the pieces I submitted to exhibit at Edinburgh Printmakers graduate exhibition this spring. The first is an installation of a paper shelf and carriage clock inspired by the novel 'Little Women' by Louisa May Alcott. The second is a garden book, inspired by the Arabian proverb 'A book is like a garden carried in your pocket'.
I wanted to share this project I finished recently. The brief was to design a book made from one A2 sheet of paper. This slightly unusual book starts out as a box, but opens out into an illustration of a vintage or antique shop, with smaller books folding out into different departments and cubby holes of the shop.
