Well that’s the way it’s been around here, much moving of stuff, as we have been sorting my mother in law’s house over the last few days. She had a LOT of stuff too, I can tell you. I don’t think she’s thrown a thing away since 1949, and all tidily kept. It has been a revelation, you discover a lot more about people when they are gone, but truthfully I’m all for people doing whatever they like with their own houses and possessions. It’s just sad when the person has gone and the relevance of all those possessions changes radically. It’s made me enter into quite a declutter at home too. Pursuing the quiet joys of minimalism is the ideal, which isn’t ideal timing at the moment but when the mood takes you etc etc. In fact I think the simple nomadic life with a yurt and a camel may be the way to go, but I’m not sure if a camel can be classed as a minimal sort of chap, albeit a very self sufficient one. So here are few images of some completed, laid down pages for the second book, Rain and Sun, which I am making for my artist book book. All the pages are done now and waiting to be machine stitched. The first two images are two double page spreads, each about 1 metre wide. Above, the cover in very early stages, and below, the laid down finished version. Obtusely, the title will be on the back of the back cover, but that’s artist books for you, you can do exactly what you want.
