Our Need/Our Essence Artist Book


The aim of Our Need/Our Essence was to create an edition of 20 hand built and hand printed artist books. The books illustrate the concept that humans have had a need throughout history to create, collect, build and change, specifically environmental and architectural elements. The illustrations of human-like creatures, who can almost be viewed as higher beings, are engaged in a process of building, creating and changing an imagined city. Research into the technical and conceptual elements of the project was key in developing this work.

Edition of 20, Accordion Style Book. All illustrations are linocuts.
