Field Notes

book design / July 2017

Field Notes was a collaboration between myself, an artist, Rebecca and a poet, Elizabeth. The book was a visual and verbal expression of fields in Dorset, where Elizabeth spent her childhood. Rebecca created a series of mark making visuals, which were screen printed for the book. I collated the two elements and experimented with typographic layout to express the story. The book was printed on semi transparent acetate with hardback covers and foil detailed. Below is an image of Elizabeth doing a reading of the book before it was exhibited at a show.
