The Alchemy of the Bog

Joan Higgins The Alchemy of the Bog 22 Mar, 2022 10 May, 2022 This is a hand made book with original mono prints and text. The size is A5, when folded and it is a concertina structure.

Tree House

Paul Johnson Tree House 22 Mar, 2022 10 May, 2022 Tree House A ninety-degree unique pop-up. As it is designed to be seen in the round, like sculpture, my aim was to make it pleasing from whatever angle it is viewed, including from above. The book is made from Waterford watercolour paper coloured with applied industrial textile dyes and additional pen and ink line work. As each part is a separate unit held together with paper dovetail joints, the whole form can be taken to pieces and rearranged.  The sections move about more freely than if they were glued together and so by gently moving...

The Persistence of Life

Frances Day The Persistence of Life The Persistence of Life I started to make a book based on the great mass extinctions in the history of the Earth.  I decided on the format of a “border book” so that the tale of the extinctions is described on small pages in the centre, but the structure then opens up into a big picture, which shows the wheel of Evolution and our tiny place in the taxonomy of life.   The images are manipulated from photographs taken at the volcanic geysers and sink holes in Yellowstone National Park although the colours there are so vivid I didn’t need to...

Fibonacci

Frances Day Fibonacci 22 Mar, 2022 10 May, 2022 Fibonacci After seeing a gif that described the motion of elements in the Fibonacci sequence as they describe a circle, I knew I had to make a book that did the same thing. This is a series of books from 1 cm square to 21 cm square, joined together in a manner that allows them to be moved to mimic the gif. Each book has a fold-out that contains an image that has been generated from two or more natural objects that display a Fibonacci sequence as a major characteristic: the largest is an overlay of hurricanes, and the smallest is a butterfly’s...

No Thing So Ordinary

Frances Day No Thing So Ordinary 22 Mar, 2022 10 May, 2022 No Thing So Ordinary This book is inspired by a quotation from the physicist Lee Smolin and features digitally created images of ordinary things, such as water and magnetic fields, and highlights quotations from other scientists over the centuries who have found wonder, joy and inspiration from the study of such things. Printed on Bockingford watercolour paper, this book is bound with a piano hinge that disassembles to reveal a hidden internal structure and message.  The hinge is a glass test tube, which is to be filled by the...

Dia de los Muertos

Antoinette Moorby Dia de los Muertos 22 Mar, 2022 10 May, 2022 Feliz dia de los Muertos My initial idea for this book was to create a shrine, but after several maquettes it developed into this cabinet. It tells the story of the Mexican festival of Day of the Dead, which takes place on the 1st and 2nd of November. Researching the subject took me back 3000 years to its origins in Pre-Colombian Mesoamerica and rituals of honouring the dead.  Each of the four pages tells part of the story of Day of the Dead from its origins to present day celebrations. Page one is filled with cut paper Monarch...

Winged

Antoinette Moorby Winged 22 Mar, 2022 10 May, 2022 Winged This was the first book I produced for The Bookband Art collaboration. I completed an online workshop with the London Drawing Centre on Matisse, looking at the way he used cut paper shapes to create art works. Following further research into his work I discovered his cut out and simplified bird shapes. I decided to take this idea and used different sizes and shapes of triangle to create my own birds. I wanted to incorporate movement into this book and so landed on the idea of pop-up and a flock of birds taking flight. The book...
