Recently I made some books as a means of presenting a text I had written for Textual Practices. The text is a description of a work I made of a video and sound installation. Interestingly the art work itself is in my mind not as good as what came after. The reason I am posting this piece though is because as a result of this work I have decided I would quite like to made animal books, for instance if I make a bird there would be text in between the feathers.
Here are some examples of what I recently made:
