“If you trust the person, you trust the book; a strong psychological advantage, for during the course of a lengthy, sometimes arduous journey, the walker comes to think of the author as a companion with an almost physical presence on whom he or she can rely implicitly.”*
This print is available to purchase for £65 plus postage and is A1 in size. It’s Wainwright at first glance, but made up entirely of the coded glyphs created through a series of walks exploring man-made and naturally found mark-making and patterns on the ground. There is a playful irony in making the user take a mindful approach to walk in such a definitive way whilst still leaving translation to the observer.
