Nobody Knows Like An Eskimo’s Nose Knows

by just 'Hooper'

Here’s a preliminary test piece for a handmade book project I’ve started. I’m actually doing real linocuts this time rather than digitally manipulating a drawing to give it that quality. I really like the distortion on the type – but it may require a new re-cut to help with the spacing in places. There’s also a wider addition of red to accompany the frill of the hood to be added. The narrative of the story is about an Eskimo who has lost her mum and follows a line of thread which leads to various noses on various creatures until she finds her mum.
