13 wood engravings interpreting 13 photographs with a conversation with Schanilec and Schneideman about the creative process and the differences between two mediums. The book is a collaboration between three artist printers.
For the first time a work of photographic documentary - an important observational look at our consumerist environment and culture - has been examined and developed by a wood engraver. In images and collaborative text the two artists examine their specialist mediums - discussing the differences between them in creative process, temperament and thought, each creating very different atmospheres, thoughts and images from the same source.
The book is a collaboration between three artist printers as it was woven together with the printing skill, eye and design of the master printer Patrick Randle at the Whittington Press in a glorious celebration of art, letterpress printing and typographic design.
