Handmade books or artists’ books allow the artist or artists a way of presentation that is completely different to a piece of work on a wall. The experience of looking at the work is controlled by the person turning the pages. Books are easy to store and carry with you wherever you go.

It is a book of images and poetry about hard graft and food production but also about meeting friends and enjoyment at being outside. The book has hand embossing, drawings, scanned watercolour and line images, hand printed collagraph and photoetch images.
