Ooooh this is nice! A beautifully crafted publication from one third of Nous Vous and illustrator and potter extraordinaire, Will Edmonds. Will’s been making us smile for years with his simple, colourful drawings that evoke a childish naivety in everyone who gazes upon them, and now he’s decided to encourage it further with a book of musings and poetry. Have a think, see what you think, let me know what you think – which may be the best book title I’ve ever read – is a scrapbook-like collection of his geometric drawings sitting alongside his friendly, philosophical writing. The book was published by Jack Scott of London-based independent publishers Corporeal.
“Desiring to emulate the playful nature of Will’s practice we devised that the book would be loosely bound and contain pages and colourful inserts that could be arranged and rearranged, namely to encourage an interaction with the book that went beyond simple page turning, but also to allow different combinations of stories and images to emerge,” Jack tells us. “To this end it then actually becomes necessary to take the book apart in order to uncover the mixed-up narratives and, in doing so, the book begins to oscillate between being a book, a set of posters, or pages that you could give to friends.”
Very, very nice. You can almost hear your books whispering and crying out to have it placed by their side. Buy your own copy or just read more about it over on the Corporeal site.
