In Good Faith – Book

In Good Faith explores my unusual childhood, growing up with parents who are both priests in the Church of England. Through a series of original interviews, the book is a personally curated investigation into the concepts of faith, family, and doubt that frame my childhood memories and inform my present-day. In Good Faith is a hand-bound a book inspired by the visual language of Bibles and the New English Hymnal. I created punctuation glyphs to represent the concepts of faith, doubt, and a paradoxical mixture of the two to highlight important passages throughout the text. A personal reflection on my nuanced relationship with faith that sits within my cross-disciplinary practice.
