Paperbark

Paperbark is an experimental book exploring impressions, textures and qualities of the Australian landscape.

As a small child I would peel off sheets of the paperbark tree in the school playground, to play with, construct with, or just to enjoy the texture of dry, curly, papery layers of soft bark that peeled off into my hands.

This book is intended to be read in a similar way: run your fingers across the texture of the pages, peel back each layer of bark and touch the crinkly thin sheets of each layer.
