Messing About In Boats
Text by Kenneth Graham
Pomona, Australia: Dave Wood, 2009. Edition of 50.

1.75 x 1.75 x 1"; 18 tulip-fold pages. Miniature book. Reproduced from an original artwork by Giclée process using a Roland printing machine onto 150 gsm archival paper. Marbled paper pastedown. Wraparound binding with fitted clasp closure.

This miniature is based on Wood's one-of-a-kind book of the same name (2009) with text and spirit taken from Kenneth Graham's Wind in the Willows.

Dave Wood: "Recently I have been exploring the endless design possibilities with Artist's Books, using the same serigraph print. I conceived the idea of creating a book using this existing serigraph, which I had created many years ago, as the basis of this book. I experimented with various design elements, making two A4 sized original books as well as this book where I used the tulip fold to create a miniature book.

"This project was an interesting challenge to make a coherent design of the entire book using the same print source to express the various design concepts. It enabled me to create different design elements as well as colour components to convey the movement and energy of this text.

"The cover was created using part of the same print introducing another new design element, different to the page designs in the book."
