A single edition handmade artist book documenting my walks during lockdown, restricted to within 2km of my house.  

It comprises a series of route maps and text responses to the choreography of social distancing entangled with the unfolding of Spring. The book is made with paper made from plant materials gathered from my garden and from walks, and using ink made from oak galls from my garden. 

Andrew Howe is an interdisciplinary artist working solo and in collaboration with other practitioners and community groups. Using walking and mapping, he explores how people interact with places, informed by over 30 years’ experience in engineering and environmental consulting. He draws attention to human entanglements within a multi-species environment, seeking more-than-human perspectives and hidden narratives. 

His walking practice includes creative interventions, audio trails, painting, collage, photography, printmaking, books, and digital media. He is a member of Walkspace collective and Meadow Arts’ network of creative practitioners, experienced in delivering arts engagement projects with schools, community groups and in public workshops.
