Some books are all about the content and some are really all about the photographs. This book falls into the latter category - I had such fun playing with the photos and think many of the images are more satisfactory than the actual book.
This book was begun about four years ago when I was taking part in Fiona Dempster's project 'A Letter a Week' - which meant that participating artists produced two alphabet books each year. I think I made three and this, the fourth, sat half finished until now. It gave me great joy to complete this book which was actually the first book or artwork in which I used my father's old letraset. No one knew this of course as the book had been sitting on my desk alongside many other unfinished bits and pieces.
There is not much to say about the book other than it was designed to have a slow reveal of the letters. When the cover is opened you can only see three of the letters - 'a', 'g' and 'z'. I have always enjoyed making books with this slow reveal.
The dimensions of the book are 420mm x 220mm which makes it the largest of the eighteen books I have made thus far in 2018. Can't believe eighteen weeks have slipped by already.
