The Ladies of Twose

This is the 2nd book I made for the Open Studio event for Stroud Artist's Book Club. It is a small concertina book with a little limerick at the beginning and was also created from a series of my collagraph prints.

SWIM with Dotty O'Bracket

For the last two weekends the Stroud Artists' Books group has been taking part in the Open Studios event at the SVA. There were a great many visitors and it was lovely to speak to some of them while I was stewarding. Some people were quite knowledgeable about Artists' Books had some had never heard of them. I think we recruited a few new members too.
I created two new little books in time for the event and sold quite a few. The images in both were taken from collagraphs which I made a while ago, when working on the prints for the 20:20 Exchange.

SWIM with Dotty O'Bracket is an accordian book with
a little poem and printed and hand-coloured elements. 12.5cms x 11cms when closed (66cms opened out).

I'll photograph the other book today and show you that in the next post.
