Two Sides to Every Story
This book was the result of a comparison between Japanese woodblock printing in the edo period and printing in Britain in the same era, which was mainly etching. The style of a Japanese concertiner book facilitated the telling of a different story on each side. Due to time constraints and availability of equipment I substituted woodblock with lino and etching with drypoint. The cover is made of silk, died and embroidered and paper with wood framing and is inspired by Japanese screens.
