Narrative - Lost // Handmade Book

  • Genevieve O'Sullivan
Pick from four topics as the theme for the book and from that theme use a related personal story. With the story create a book that shows the story not just with the words but with the physical book: how you read and use it.
I chose loss, the loss of my grandfather in Jamaica. When he passed away it didn’t feel like he was gone because he was so far away, so when I went back to Jamaica and saw his bed empty I finally realised he was gone.
Each page in the book opens like a map and has pictures from the UK across the Atlantic to Jamaica to show the journey of realisation.
