a limited edition handprinted artist's book of garden birds
Limited edition of 10
'Feed the birds, tuppence a bag...'
This tiny explosion fold book contains sketch images of eight of the birds who visit the feeders in my North Yorkshire garden (see list below). The images are not to scale but they, more or less, progress from the smallest to the largest across the book.
Each book is individually handprinted from a drypoint etching plate and then hand tinted with watercolour paint, so differences will occur and each book is unique. The covers are also printed from drypoint plates and depict bird footprints hopping through snow. The book is tied closed with grey ribbon. For a closer look see the video below.
Closed the book measures just 5.25 x 5.25 cm (about 2" x 2"), opening out to approximately 28 cm from point to point when fully extended.
Only ten books have been made. Each one is numbered, signed and dated in pencil on the reverse of the images.
You will receive one book, wrapped in tissue and presented in a labelled gift box.
