Limited edition book in collaboration with poet Gabriel Gbadamosi, hand set and printed typography by Graham Bignell of New North Press London and hand bound by Elizabeth Neville. The edition was 20 books. I work in Printmaking using traditional materials in etching Lino and wood-engraving. My printmaking is influenced by the culture and natural history of Lamu Island. Since 1993 I have collaborated with writer Gabriel Gbadamosi, whose poems draw on threads of moments as a response to my image making. I work in sets and series, to produce a narrative visual journey, combining figurative and abstracted elements. Each series is put together into a small edition concertina book format, with hand set typography, hand made covers and end papers.
