Scope and Content

A small handmade book with grey card cover. Inside are 4 sheets of paper, each featuring a linoprint in one colour and handbound with string.

'Series 1 of linocut prints based on the poem 'Thrift' by Tony Curtis. "For their beauty I have decided to pocket a string of barnacle geese. And because I’d miss them if they were gone, I have gathered two sackfuls of cloud, a bucket of rain And a field of fine mist." '
