Perfectly Ordinary portfolios

I recently had the privilege of working with printmaker Ruth O’Donnell, binding two portfolios and an artist’s book for her exhibition ‘Perfectly Ordinary’. These archival portfolios were made to store a series of 10 prints - aquatint etchings printed using a striking cobalt blue ink. The portfolios were covered in a complementary grey bookcloth and each had an inscription with a rectangular section of her blue print.

This handmade portfolio measures 35 x 30 x 5 cms.
