Conor Nolan | Dog Days Zine

Conor Nolan, Ormond 2019, Publication, Uncategorized

cover

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.
