In 2015 - 16, I embarked on gathering together all the made objects around my parents and extended families homes. With the help of my niece Suzi Holsted, who photographed the objects with natural light, I set about categorising and writing accompanying text, asking many questions along the way.
The result was a book of 100 pages bringing together some of the inventive work of Julian Godwin (1925 - 2017). Ranging from domestic items through to furniture, tools and gadgets, they show a number of principles at work, which makes the objects interesting, well resolved and long lasting. Over 30 books have been printed and distributed amongst family and friends.
