Eve O’Callaghan’s ‘Manuals’ is a limited edition of handmade books. Each book acts as a miniature portfolio, opening to reveal two pamphlets of original drawings. The drawings are interpretations of a similar image, one in pencil and another in colour. Taking inspiration from a ‘How-to’ layout of designers and decorators manuals, O’Callaghan has loosely interpreted two botanical motifs as abstract forms. ‘Manuals’ is an artwork that can take whatever form its owner chooses: a book to be opened and appreciated personally, or a collection of parts to be divided or framed separately.
