Summary

Concertina folded artist's book. Images by Sheree Kinlyside were drawn onto a large lithographic stone and each book printed onto one large sheet of paper to be later divided and bound with text added. The imagery refers to the childlike version of what a knitted planet might look like and harks back to the artist's childhood thoughts of making a soft place with her mother to cushion her from the hardships of a difficult life. Each copy is enclosed in a unique hand knitted book sleeve. Hand set type (Parsons 18pt) on BFK Rives, grey 280 gsm paper. Lithographs printed by Jill O'Sullivan at Umbrella Studio, Townsville, Queensland.--Red Rag Press website.
