Stephen Dupont's Afghanistan 1993 - 2012 The Box Set

The National Library in Canberra has been the first to acquire Stephen Dupont's recently completed Afghanistan 1993 - 2012 Box Set of handmade artists books from his Afghanistan series.

The set includes Why Am I A Marine?, Axe Me Biggie, Generation AK, Stoned in Kabul and The Afghanistan Diaries. 

The books are fully archival and printed with Epson pigment inks on Innova 225 gsm 100% cotton-rag paper, then coated with Hahnemuhle spray coating. Hand stitched section sewn binding with debossed greyboard front and back covers and black cloth spine. The slip case cloth is Desert pattern MARPAT (short for MARine PATtern), a digital camouflage pattern designed for the United States Marine Corps.

New video book previews of the hand made books can be viewed via the book section on Stephen Dupont's website .  

We will be posting shortly multimedia pieces on the blog that demonstrate the creative process involved in making Stephen's books.
