Postcard No. 1

Early last summer I had been taking photographs in Sheffield's once industrially active Neepsend district, and creating mono-print studies of Hill and Adamson's photographs of working class citizens of the 19th century.* The products of these pursuits seemed to turn out well and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to present them in a book showing my interest in England's industrial roots in the 1800s, as well as the people who inhabited that world. 

Postcard No. 1, summer 2011
For those of you interested in book-binding, I made a wraparound hardcover portfolio (case binding) with an inner folder insert. The paper folder attached inside served to hold together a selection of the photographs from my walk in Neepsend and a small single-signature bound booklet of my mono-prints.

*To save a lot of waffle I'll delve into these two aspects of the first 'postcard' a bit more in separate posts later. Don't want to be at the risk of boring you lot! 

But if you really can't wait that long, have a sneaky peak here...
