How were your illustrations used? :
College or university project, Experimentation

How did you make this work:
‘Greenhouses’ is a project created as part of my research into non-fiction picturebooks, used to explore how the format of a book can affect its content and reading experience. Taking the form of a carousel book, the history of greenhouses appears represented into five colourful scenes. Each component of the book has been laser-cut, screenprinted, and manually assembled to create the final object.
