Dog Days was made my member Conor Nolan as an experimental personal project earlier this year. The book was conceived during a period of creative block at the end of 2018, when walking his dog served as a release from creative frustration for Nolan. The 16-page risograph printed book uses simple sequencing, isolation of elements such as houses and trees, and interaction between the two main characters (Nolan and his dog Bert) as a way to set the scene of a quiet suburban night’s walk.
