I am finally able to share images from a recently completed
book art project that was started long before the pandemic, a wordless
paper-cut leporello book of Robert
Burns' epic poem Tam O' Shanter -
The poem follows the misadventures of farmer Tam on his way home from another night in the pub and a
chance encounter with a coven of witches and warlocks along the way...
I felt that the supernatural subject matter of the poem lent itself very well to being re-told in this format, especially the chase scene, and the artwork focuses almost exclusively on the journey home from the tavern...
This version of Tam O' Shanter is in an open edition, however each copy will have its own unique number. It's my intention to create a limited edition version next year.
Tam O' Shanter will be available to purchase from my online shop from
5pm on Sunday 21st November 2021
