Book of Absence is a labor of love. Something I started in an old sketchbook in December 2015. It took me exactly a year to complete and while it was a tremendously difficult year, I found a way to pour my grief into this book and it was what kept me moving forward.

In an A4 book format, Book of Absence takes a cue from old botanical and zoological illustrations and positions itself as a visual hand drawn archive depicting a probable loss of species. It is entirely handcrafted and custom bound by hand. Book of Absence exists as a unique edition.
