‘Skin Deep’ is a beautifully crafted artist’s book to accompany artist Mary-Ruth Walsh’s exhibition Skin Deep.
This handbound artist’s book contains full colour reproductions of Mary-Ruth Walsh’s artworks and two essays by Dr. Yvonne Scott and Katherine Waugh.
The grey cover has a mixture of blind emboss and silver embossing for the title. The grey is contrasted against the bright pink accordion spine. The spine mimics the central artwork in the book ‘Aprés Eileen Gray’, a six-panel folding screen.
Limited edition book of 250 signed copies
