pages from my 2009 book "Echoes"

As an illustrator who is interested in objects of the past I make artists books.
Studies for my foundation degree were inspired by Tyntesfield and the more humble house of 1874 in which I grew. The old house was an adventure playground with many rooms and abundant secret places that were carved in wood stone and glass.
For banners to go on scaffolding at the restoration site, with another artist I researched innovations and building methods of the Victorian era; from this a story book evolved, by illustration and comment on this legacy of just past living memory.
