***PRE-ORDER*** These books are currently under construction but are open to pre-order at a reduced price to help cover the costs of production

Hand bound book in two volumes, featuring 16 black and white photographs hand-printed in the darkroom in each volume (32 prints in total across both).

This book continues the series began with my first handmade book of self portraits made in 2018, but as this one is going to end up being twice the size I've decided to split it into two volumes. The photographs in both were taken in Venice during the 2019 Art Biennale. The covers are made from hand-marbled paper produced by local Venetian paper artisans, purchased during my visit. All copies are hand-made by me in hardcover using a French link stitch.

The first edition is limited to 9 copies of each volume, of which 6 copies of each volume are available for sale. All copies come signed and numbered by the artist.

Volume I: Sunlight - £45 (£50 full price)
Volume II: Shadows - £45 (£50 full price)
Volumes i & II - £75 (£90 full price)
