For the past several years the primary focus of my creative interests has been an on-going photo collection of international birds. As a resolution I chose to create a series of books.
The creative challenge has been to create a book that is informative, unique and elevates the self published book into a tasteful art object. My early years as a print-maker suggested my approach, designing and publishing in a similar manner to the printmaker. The practice of assigning an edition number was also followed, limiting the number of books to be published. Each book carries an edition number and a signature as well as an ISBN registration number.
The books are printed on archival paper using pigment inks. This meets the National Gallery of Canada’s archival requirements.
