The fleeting and tenuous connection we have with the natural world is amplified in childhood, through discovery and exploration. it was this feeling of wonder that Kydd wanted to explore in the book.

DIANA H. BLOOMFIELD Spent Roses

2018
Handmade Artist Book
Unique
6.25 x 9.5 (with spine)

The handmade artist book was initially undertaken as part of my time-based project to create a piece of handmade art each day for an entire year. These one-of-a-kind books are as tactile, as full of possibilities, and as perfectly imperfect as the printing processes themselves. Weaving my original cyanotype and gum bichromate prints into the very binding of these piano hinge books allows for a piece of art where concept meshes seamlessly with imagery.

ANDREW SEGUIN The Room In Which I Work

Published by Omnidawn
2017
First edition softcover
96pp, 9x6

Winner of the Omnidawn Poetry Prize.
Evoking the life of Nicéphore Niépce, one of the pioneers of photography, Andrew Seguin’s The Room In Which I Work explores how the invention of the medium was also an invention of language. At once biographical and personal, factual and fictional, Seguin’s debut collection not only provides a unique look at Niépce’s life, but investigates how photography has provided lasting metaphors for how we think, write and talk about what we see. Combining original photographs with poems that range through history, chemistry, collage, dialogue and lyric, The Room In Which I Work is a singular meditation on language and image.
