“Today I am a Polar bear’ is a limited edition run of 225 books(. 1st edition: 25 books, 2nd edition: 50 books, 3rd edition: 150 books ) featuring 7 different illustrated animal masks to make and disguise yourself as.
Each book is entirely handmade and features a screen printed cover and hidden poster and another screen print within the centre page, as well as a unique handmade finger puppet.
The book can be taken apart easily to make the animal masks and to display the prints, or… kept as a book, the choice is yours.
Another decision you will have to make is…
…which animal will you be today?!”
