Featured this Month on our WE LIKE wall is a new artist book 'An Unnatural History of Waikanae' published by Paul Thompson. Limited to just 10, this artist book explores the fascination we all have with intimate treasures picked up on walks along the beach. The books themselves are a reflection of this act of collection with photographs of Paul's recent haul of treasure.
Paul's work is certainly on paper but not in the traditional print or letterpress printing context. He is a book-maker so the works are intended to come out from behind the glass and be handled. Solander has a range of his productions from the commercially produced finely designed book through the limited edition to his current interest which is the making of zooks.
