This is a full length (32pg) children’s book that I created to be printed using Riso Print. The story is that of a cloud who is looking for friendship and his journey to find it.
I normally work using monoprint and I wanted to combine monoprint textures with Riso colours to see how they might work together. I chose a story that was simple and that gave me the opportunity to try a selection of Riso colours as indicated by the narrative.
The book is a limited first edition of 40. It is printed in five colours and is bound with coil binding.
30pp. | 170 x 270 mm
