Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge - Book project

For this project, my role is to create a series of 14 no less than engraving depicting a range of animals that somewhat attempt to illustrate the Celestial Emporium Taxonomy of animal categories. Since the list is so subjective, there is almost unlimited scope for interpretation. I hope to create a fun and interesting series of images to compliment the expert book binding of R.I. Sutton. The techniques we have chosen will be using lino cutting and a dot technique along with utilising the semi-opaque qualities of Japanese paper. There is much more to read on our official Substack


The book will be an accordian style construction with hand engraved images illustrating each of the 14 categories in woodblock or lino.
