Bird Editions, Oxford: 2014
Itoqqippoq means ‘washing line’ in Greenlandic. The narrative of this book is created from a series of photographs of a frozen washing line observed in Ilulissat, West Greenland. In the Arctic, laundry is left out to freeze-dry all year round, but these sheets were dancing in the wind – a sign of spring. 
Itoqqippoq was undertaken during a residency at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford, and was printed at the Centre for Fine Print Research, Bristol, on an Epson Stylus Pro 9600.
Edition limited to 50 signed and numbered copies. 14 pages, 14.5 x 14.5 cm. Concertina binding by Manuel Mazzotti of London, in turquoise Wibalin Buckram with white foil-blocked boards.
