Man & Beast
MAN & BEAST
Product Description: A 15 cm x 15 cm, self-contained, concertina book. The front page of the publication opens up to reveal the concertina within. The initial scene depicts a snowy environment with a sled and what is assumed to be huskies. The image has been created using pastels and is two tones of blue. The viewer becomes aware of the expansiveness of this barren environment when the concertina is fully extended.
On the alternate side are a series of dual-layered silkscreen printed illustrations. It depicts various humorous images of humans interacting with animals, for example a child riding a tortoise. The two individual narratives are separated by oppositional mediums and color pallets. All exterior pages have been given deckled edges.
