This is a selection from a series that was a collaboration with author David Southwell. I met him virtually, via Twitter, through an earlier project, Urban Fringe. We wanted to work together, and so for 50 days, David sent me a word, and a resume of why he had selected that word. I recorded my responses to his word and description. I embossed the word on my 1866 Albion Hand Press, and selected phrases from his and my text. Interestingly we have never met face to face.
