Pocket Drawings

Pocket drawings is made up of sixty-three panels of drawings by William Kentridge. The drawings were printed onto scanned book pages from Baedeker's "L'Italie des Alpes a Naples, 1926" and were then pasted onto a cotton backing so that the panels fold up into a small document that is placed in a handmade and hand-printed box. It was produced in an edition of 25 plus proofs in 2015.
