for the trees — Moniker Press


for the trees is a collaborative risograph book experiment based on a series of drawings by Sarah Davidson. The publication was developed with Erica Wilk, who uses her Risograph publishing studio Moniker Press as a platform for artistic collaboration. The book also includes a text by Brynn McNab, written in response to the art.

Using only four risograph colours and coloured paper, for the trees utilizes colour layering techniques to create continuity with the original work and essay throughout the book.
