PAGAN FESTIVALS

This is the work that Lesley completed for her Final Major Project on the BA course and is the main subject of her Degree Show.  Inspiration for four of the books came from the verses commonly associated with the four main pagan festivals.  The text was letterpressed and the images were blind embossed.  The Wiccan Wheel uses the colours associated with the eight annual festivals as a backdrop to cut work describing the main theme of each festival.  August Moon shows the phases of the moon as cut and then silver gilded images, the opening verse is blind debossed letterpress.
