An Alphabet of Scarborough

Published 2017

Edition of 26 copies which represent the 26 letters of the Alphabet. An A to Z book of Scarborough, views that have caught my eye for one reason or another.


As well as the hand bound book which will contain all 26 images + frontispeace & notes, there will be an aditional edition of 26 copies of each image which can be individually framed.

Why an Alphabet?

It's limiting otherwise the book could just ramble on, also it means I had to choose a limited number of pictures. Each individual page has printed onto the cover A is for, B is for, so that the viewer has an idea of what is coming. Open the page and the picture I've chosen to depict is revealed.

The book when bound will be approximately 41 x 27.5 cms in size. Each page is hand printed onto an A2 sized piece of paper which is then folded in half. 1st page has the Title of the page; 'A is for Art Gallery', page 2 is printed with the text about the subject, Page 3 is the image and Page 4 is blank, leading to the next set of pages.

Smith Settle of Yeadon, Nr Leeds, expert bookbinders have been commissioned to bind the completed book. 1/4 leather spine with gold blocking, coloured headbands, indented title to front cover. Specially designed end papers to compliment the book. The whole housed in a matching solander box.
