A Circle in Four Parts [Special Edition] 
Toronto, Canada: Nothing Else Press, 2016
4 Soft enamel pins, plexi box
5.5 cm x 5.1 cm x 5.5cm
Edition of 50 initialed and numbered copies

A circle is divided and rearranged into four quadrants to create this black and white graphic lapel pin. The work is available as a single pin or as a special edition that houses an arrangement of four pins in a plexi box. The original design is rotated, reflected and reshuffled, to create 6 different patterns.

G, S, Y Types
Toronto, Canada: Nothing Else Press, 2016
2 x 2 cm.
Edition of 50 (each type)

"The G, S, Y Types represent the only three possible configurations that can be constructed on a nine-square grid by tracing a continuous pathway through all nine squares. Additional variants can be generated by flipping or rotating the three basic types. The bevelled pathways were inspired by overhead views of gabled roofs and by First Style paintings from Pompeii. The three types are named after the letterforms they most closely resemble: G, S and Y."
- Robert Fones

The above works were launched at the inaugural Toronto Art Book Fair (a year ago this month) and Edition Fair (last fall). The third and final project in the series will be released this Thursday at the 2nd annual Toronto Art Book Fair, at the Nothing Else Press table, where the few remaining copies of the previous pins will also be available.
