Gizem Vural


This Dolphin Press & Print edition was produced as part of the course  Grad Remix (September-December 2018), a collaboration course between the Illustration Practice program  (graduate) and the Printmaking Department (undergraduate) at MICA. 

In January 2018, Illustrator Gizem Vural was invited to produce visuals for the edition  and work collaboratively with the course students to design the book structure. Printed  sheets were french folded binding the raw edge at the spine. Vural’s gradiant colored pencil drawings were translated into risographic and screenprinted images that tell a wordless story of the seasons.

We decided to create two versions as a softcover and the other one as a hardcover. There are pages created with only using screen printing and the other pages with riso printing.

There are some pages in the book opening wide to the right.

Some more pages from the hardcover version.
