Shell Book / Home Book


An art project in the form of a limited edition book

This small edition of 15 was created completely in-studio during L.A.’s summer 2020 stay-at-home orders. It is a lightly designed facsimile of an existing sketchbook which had been made at home pre pandemic. The book consists of scanned images from the sketchbook printed on an Epson home inkjet printer. Each page is passed through the printer four times, printing one quadrant at a time, in order to achieve full bleed, double sided, legal-sized prints from a small basic printer. The prints are hand-bound with cotton embroidery floss. Included in the pages is a removable poster with assembly instructions.
