Beer, Glorious Beer, 2018
Altered book
22.4 x 29.2 x 7.6cm

Using the wonderfully Australian tome, Beer, Glorious Beer and drawing inspiration from the colourful endpapers this work was made in response to the death of a friend. Andrew Bailey who worked in the Nicholas Building as a master engraver, was an authority on local Melbourne brewing history.

Upon hearing of his death I wanted to celebrate his life and influence, so a book about Australian beers was the perfect starting point.

The result is a small tribute that I'm sure he would have liked...
