Scope and Content

No. 4 in an edition of 10 copies.

A handmade hardback book with a blue cover containing intaglio and screenprinted images.

"This artist's book traces a childhood friendship into adulthood. Each spread covers an academic year, starting in September 1075 and running to August 1995. The opening spread begins with the boys aged 8 at the beginning of a Jesuit education, with the last spread 20 years later. The title, AMDG, is a shortened version of the Jesuit motto Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam (To the Greater Glory of God). These letters were written as the heading for all schoolwork during the time with the Jesuits."
