a book in a book

Back in March this year we reported that Philippa had been successful in having work selected to appear in a book called – 500 handmade books – volume 2 – and here it is. Published by Lark Publishing and juried by Julie Chen, the book is available from Amazon at a bargain price of £17.99.

The featured piece is entitled The Daily Desk Diary which used a working environment – namely the desk – to examine the role it played within daily life. The desk was photographed at the same time each day for an entire academic year. The images reveal how the desk evolves over time, with some items consistent throughout the entire process to other more transient objects and ephemera – including a pair of blue rubber gloves, a large cake and four casters.

The two maze books – each representing a semester – open out to form the shape and proportions of the actual desk.
