'L I M I N A L : Phases' is an artist's book in a limited edition of 100 copies, with an introduction by John Vernon Lord. Signed and numbered, 32 pages, black and white, printed on 120gsm uncoated paper, 120mm x 120mm.
Based on his drawings for House of Illustration's 'Drawing a Day' project, each of Keith's 1-inch drawings is paired with an evocative word, so that the book forms a kind of ‘graphic poem’. The reader is invited 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.' - John Vernon Lord
In September 2018, House of Illustration invited artists to do a drawing every day, but with a twist: each piece had to be just one inch big. 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.
Keith Robinson is an illustrator with a love of ancient places and long country walks. 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
