In June 2012 we went to Berlin to work as artists in residence at Enblanco Gallery. We wrote, illustrated and designed 'The Island' together, silkscreen printing it in the gallery space while we were there.

Printed as a limited edition of 60 copies, the publication consists of two books (The Island & The Inhabitants) and four loose inserts held in a folder.

The Island is a fictional account, exploring ideas of protection, the natural world, and mans' place in it. The story takes a scientific hypothesis as a starting point: some cold-blooded species have no fixed adult size, as humans do, but continue to grow until they die. If these species were completely protected, they could theoretically keep growing and live forever. The Island exists as a completely protected place for the carefully chosen candidates of a scientific investigation.

The book pages, covers and folder are screenprinted in grey, on Mohawk Superfine White Eggshell 148gsm paper, 270gsm Colorplan Mid Green, and 350gsm Colorplan Turquoise. The loose inserts are printed in grey & blue on Colorplan 175gsm Pale Grey paper. Each book is bound with a transparent band, and is hand-numbered by the artists.
