A series of shapes screen-printed on to the existing design of a book, World of Nature, published in 1965.
The overprinted shapes highlight the character in the photos and the slightly random combinations of fact and emotion in the copy. This helps to draw attention to something lovely, which might otherwise be overlooked.
This is the first paragraph of the book…
‘There is so much beauty on the Earth! There have always been and still are people who walk its surface as though they were treading on royal carpets, who know how to gaze in solemn reverence, who know how to lose themselves joyfully in contemplation. Their senses are not blunted by the daily routine, and they have not lost the precious ability “to stand and stare”.’
