Book Mates

BOOKMATES COVER

Book Mates
Keith Godard

A bilingual story in French and English that tells the story of a friendship between
a paper book and a digital book. It’s a unique publication in that the pages can be scanned
to view the antics and animations of what a digital book can do as opposed
to the page-turning possibilities of a printed work.

With an IPhone or a tablet, a free app will enable you to experience the book electronically,
as well as reading the text off the flat page.

My approach to the work aims to delight and thrill children as well as pleasing the adult
reader. The concept is a publishing breakthrough that combines static printed images with
electronic content that moves. 8” x 8”. Extent: 48 pages.

Villefranche, Belvès, Baynac, Castelnaud and Domme are villages of the Perigord Noir region in southwest France.  Each town map was thoroughly researched for accuracy and detailed by the artist/designer, Keith Godard who walked every street to document the shape of the windows and the color of the buildings. The drawings are then water-colored and scanned reducing them for lithographic offset printing.  The drawings and the original paintings illustrating the process of making the plans have been exhibited in the la Musèe des Bastides in Monpazier and the Musèes des  Belvès titled ”Le Perigord et New York en Images”.

Make Your Own Museum

51K7TJFH5ZL._SL500_SS500_

Make Your Own museum was conceived and designed for the J.Paul Getty Museum in Malibu. This kit comes with an instruction book and display parts representing:  paintings, photographs, sculpture and furniture that is in the Getty Museum’s collection.  The kit allows the user to “curate” exhibitionsby displaying objects of their choice in three-dimensional cardboard galleries. It teaches children what museums are all about, how artworks are collected and presented in galleries. It also shows behind-the-scenes aspects of a museum and allows children to share and swap art pieces.
