Remains of Rome — a Chapbook

Chap­books are a tra­di­tion­al art-form: small hand- or desk­top-print­ed book­lets bound, in this case with sad­dle-stitch. I recent­ly made 20 of these on two dif­fer­ent papers: Ilford Galerie 200GSM mat­te ‘Duo’ paper and Moab Entra­da Rag, 190GSM. I print­ed them on an Epson large-for­mat print­er on A4 sheets that fold to make an A5 ‘sig­na­ture’. The bind­ing thread is a 3‑fold waxed linen thread No.40 made by Lille in France.

The Chap­book

But I’ve also made a PDF book of the same pages for wider dis­tri­b­u­tion here.

The sub­ject sug­gest­ed itself when I was scan­ning through my image cat­a­log: I saw that I had a bunch of images from my 2018 vis­it to Rome that formed a small ‘set’. I’ve used only one of these before: a shot of the inte­ri­or of the dome of the Pan­theon. But the rest were tak­en around the same time — includ­ing the one non-Roman pho­to, of the Tem­ple of Har­mo­nia at Agri­gen­tum in Sicily.

As usu­al, please click here, or on the image of page-thumb­nails below, to down­load the PDF file (about 19MB). Please view the images full screen on your com­put­er or tablet to see them as I intend­ed they should be seen. A cou­ple are in ‘land­scape’ mode to fit the page — your PDF view­er will allow you to rotate them (right) to see them right-way-up.

I hope you enjoy them. If you are inter­est­ed in receiv­ing a copy of the next chap­book I make of my images please email me at ‘peter’ at this website
