About this Book

Dave has just finished this labour of love.  Painstakingly cut-out images in predominantly black paper convey the sentiment of Henry Lawson's lesser known poem, Reedy River.  Each page, including the silver cut-out page, has been subtely hand coloured with the calligraphy loosely written on the recto page.  You may think there is a smudge on one of the images!  The artist tells us this conveys a waterfall (not a mistake)! The image on the reverse side each cut-out page also shows the mood of the poem with the lettering written more formally.  This is a one-of-a-kind book in a concertina format which can be viewed as an entire work of art, or each page spread individually enjoyed.

This is another masterpiece, designed and lettered by Dave, which he has really enjoyed creating over a period of months.  We hope you love it too - any questions, please ring us on 07 5485 2968 or email us info@davewood.com.au
