artist book - Kim Herringe

I was recently asked to create a very special handmade book for a very special commission.

These pictures are the summary of that commission piece.

I loved making this book – everything from selecting the papers, finalising the structure – then actually constructing and binding the book together.

But most of all I loved WHY I was making the it, and for WHOM.

The structure for this book is based on something I learned earlier this year when attending Summer Workshops at Studio West End.

It can be experienced and viewed in a few different ways. And each aspect of the book relates to the intention of the piece.

The book combines a concertina fold stitched with sections and some surprises of colour and handwritten sentiments. The colour pages are gelatin plate monoprints.

It was a pleasure and a privilege to create this book then send it on to its new home.

      Hi Carol, thank you ? it was a joy to make. It was based on something I learned at Studio West End’s Summer School. I can’t wait for Summer School next year 🙂
