Garden Book Club is a collaborative project between illustrator Jamie Mills and artist Megan Wellington exploring the relationships between people and their plants. Partly inspired by the salacious tones of plant-care handbooks, partly from observations and partly invented, the work looks to highlight the tactile nature of these encounters.
Working with illustration, collage, photography and filmmaking, process has become a large part of the collaborative practice and they have been looking at different printmaking possibilities (screen print, RISO, cyanotypes) to bring the work into new contexts. The intention is for the work to be experimental and playful; they are currently in the process of growing from the initial seedlings, producing more editions and prints to add to the collection.
