"The Golden Plaice is a hand made pop up book made using a mixture of screen printed imagery, pencil drawings and typography. Each book takes me about a week to make. It is inspired by nonsense literature and Cornwall's wonderfully diverse sea life. I made screen prints of the characters from my original drawings which were then scanned, printed, cut out and assembled!"--Artist's website.
