Finally I have finished my book for the wlyb minute exhibition! It has taken a while to emerge… I never, ever mount anything on black so this is a bit weird for me – but it was relevant to the communication of the piece so I went with the flow!

Each digitally printed book (based on some experimental calligraphy) has hidden bits of Letraset type added to it. From certain angles bits of this type can be seen. The whole point is that it is secretive – so really no one else is meant to be able to read it all. Three of the four books also hold the structure together – making it harder to access the hidden messages. The fourth book tumbles out from the structure as it has been set free into the world for all to see.

I am still trying out different structures to hold my small books in. Something that contains, hides and reveals.

Work in progress for minute exhibition. Testing book structures with dummy books. Finally I have had some time (and found some inclination) to experiment with different structures to hold my little books. Still unresolved but at least I now have some ideas! Hurray…

I am filling a photo journal for Laurence King Publishers. They set it as a challenge on their Facebook page. Myself and Ellie are attempting to do it.
