LIMINAL: 'Phases' - Artist's book, signed limited edition.
Dispatches from a small business in
Materials: paper, card
'L I M I N A L : Phases' is an artist's book in a limited edition of 100 copies, signed and numbered. Black and white, 32 pages with 30 original illustrations, printed on 120gsm uncoated paper with a 300gsm Cyclus card cover, 120mm x 120mm.
The drawings in the book were completed in response to the ‘Drawing a Day’ challenge, set by London gallery House of Illustration. In September 2018 they invited artists to do a drawing every day, but with a twist: each piece had to be just one inch big. (Each illustration is reproduced in the book at actual size.) The challenge arose from their exhibition of work by revered illustrator, John Vernon Lord, who in 2016 did a one inch drawing for every single day of the year.
From the introduction to 'L I M I N A L : Phases', by John Vernon Lord:
Keith has paired each drawing with an evocative word, so that the book forms a kind of 'graphic poem'. He invites the reader/viewer 'to form connections and narratives between picture and text; both on each spread, and as a sequence through the book'. The drawings have a compelling magic about them. They conjure up enigmatic symbols that we feel we must try to decipher and seek out connections with the accompanying words. Like all interesting images they are 'threshold' windows that invite constant viewing.
L I M I N A L is a continuing personal project, exploring the realm that exists between imagination and nature. More information can be found at: keithrobinson.co.uk/liminal

Mystical, truly liminal, inspiring. When there's so little for the mind to grasp on the page, it starts to wander. Sometimes, if you're lucky and attentive, you might find deep treasures.
Wonderful artist, great communication and absolutely stunning work. I’m so happy with this choice!!!
Liminal arrived a few days ago. Beautiful work, and I especially like how the story reveals itself in the smallest of increments.
