Alexi Hobbs
Marlon Kowalski
Jake Dow-Smith
Sean Stewart
Will Govus
Carlo Van De Roer
Pete Halupka
Justin James Reed

The two volumes are copies of one another except that the black book has the images and the red book has the names of the contributors without the images.
Really nice to see the exposed hand stitching.
The books feature a huge variety of paper stocks, overlays and cutouts, it has clearly been planned and thought out very well.
I bought my copy from Jake via triangletriangle, they sold out it two hours, so I was very lucky to get one.
There are plans to make a regular edition of the book this summer. I do hope this happens, this deserves to be seen by a wider audience.
