Reviews

"Somewhere between topographic survey, field guide and a photobook that has a fictional or poetic bent, this is a really clever and meticulously produced book. " 

Gemma Padley, freelance journalist and editor


The edition has been made with the following principles in mind: Minimise waste and the use of harmful materials, make locally, prioritise recycling.

Paper

GF Smith: Colourplan - made in Great Britain, FSC certified.

Munken: Lynx Smooth - FSC certified

Munken: Polar Smooth - FSC certified

Shepherds: Greyboard - 100% recycled material

Printing

HP Indigo Press

The digital print production means reducing waste by decreasing printing plates and the intensive cleaning cycles associated with analog printing. The inks can be de-inked from the paper, enabling the prints to be recycled.

FE Burman 

A local printer 3.5 miles from the studio space where my books are made and stored.

Packaging

The packaging material is composed of paper off-cuts from the book making process, and recycled materials from other studio deliveries (paper, bubble-wrap)

The boxes are unbleached and uncoated recyclable cardboard.
