Rendlesham Forest is a vast plantation of conifers in East Anglia, UK. Lines of darkly needled trees stand silently; there are few roads, and fewer settlements, and it is a place renowned for sightings of unidentified flying objects. Its dark vastness hides the strange coast of that region, a low-lying land of marsh and shingle. Out there on the wave-torn coast is Orford Ness, a weird secret island brought into being by five centuries of longshore drift, five centuries of pebbles piling upon pebbles. Orford Ness was the inspiration for the letterpress book I recently made with Robert Macfarlane. Rendlesham Forest is the green guardian of Ness, the arboreal ramparts that hide Ness from the sight of the world. The print is made using 23ct gold leaf, and as such is a very small edition of only 23. paper size: 270mm x 170mm print size: 210mm x 125mm edition: 23 £350.00
