About this book:
The Shape of Absence began with a phrase and a boy. Weeks of emotional trauma and rumination culminated into an artist's book describing the painful process of the end of a relationship. The pages turn and unfold to reveal the text and can be open so all text is visible at once.
Completely letterpress printed on mulberry paper, the Shape of Absence was created with 40 passes through the press, including eight passes of pressure printing, 21 passes using hand-set metal type to create the main center image, and 11 passes of text, also hand-set. 891 pierced holes reinforce the pressure printed background image.
