Libraryland!

This book, by the ever weird Oslo Davis, came from his three months as artist in residence at the State Library of Victoria. Over this period Oslo filled many notebooks with drawings of people and situations observed at the library. When he came to us to help make a book, he had organised the drawings into the following categories: serious, silly, neither serious nor silly. From there we edited the drawings into a kind of 'day in the life of the library'. The book was printed on a cream stock with a craft board cover that echoed the original Japanese notebooks Oslo drew in, and was printed in Pantone Black 6, which includes 20% silver, making the print resemble either graphite pencil or the sheen of india ink on paper.
