Titled on the spine, a noxious weed and an essential culinary herb, this wordless book contains visual thoughts from the natural environment. The playful process of monotype pre-empted combinations of hand cut stencils, linocuts and ghost printing. The intention was to experiment, as if putting on new glasses to view with a fresh and more sensitive perspective. It explores physical adjacencies, contrast, positive and negative, hard and soft edge, rhythm and abrupt alteration, simplicity and complexity. The quality of paper-types and ink, of fold-outs and transparencies, are attempts at providing different experiences as each page is visited.
