An English Garden & How to Make a Bomb

Publication design for artist Gabriella Hirst. Each copy of An English Garden comes with the pamphlet How to Make a Bomb. The publications chart the various attempts by Hirst to produce new specimens of the Atom Bomb rose through grafting and cuttings.

An English Garden speculates upon possible links between the British Imperial programme of ‘gardening the world’, the enduring impact of nuclear colonialism, and the political symbolism of plants, focussing namely on the cultivated rose plant as a highly manipulated ornamental species weighed down by powerful and contradictory meaning.

resitance sustenance protection

Book design for artist Rachael House.

Resistance Sustenance Protection is a year of drawings, a pandemic record, an archive, a call for change. Angry, funny, compassionate, tender, queer and political, these drawings make vivid, engaged, intersectional commentaries on the pandemic and the wider connections, ramifications and resonances that it has had across the world."

The book, containing more than 200 drawings, is section-sewn with an open spine to let it open completely flat. The front cover is foil-blocked with a tipped on illustration.

Dimensions 170 x 210 mm
