To The Sea

Three images from a 34 page book of etchings and text based on the theme of the seaside, inspired by Cornwall’s beaches and landscape.

I was working to a brief, to explore and experiment with one of four traditional printing methods and to create a bound book as an end product. Detailed and energetic, each page is unique. I have combined imagery with letterpress, to achieve rich textured text and embossed pages.

Concertina book pages 24cm x 23cm.
