George Spooner is on Level 5 BA (Hons) Visual Communication at Arts University Bournemouth. For this project he created a zine that could be entered into the Bristol Artist Book Fair 2015.

The concept shows the different stages of the life-cycle of a tree through the folding of pages of the book. The folds will encourage the reader to interact and discover information and ‘help the tree grow’. As the book begins the tree will start as a seedling and the branches will gradually form through the folds and then the middle of the book will be the trunk fully formed. Following on from the middle trunk page, the branches will start to flower, grow fruit and then wither, but what will remain in the back of the book; an envelope with a seed to then start the cycle again.
