Our Sago comes to life

In 2014 my dear friend Blake Paul Kendall launched a pozible campaign to fund his book Our Sago. The funds were raised and I jumped on board to design the book. The book tells the story of a family of children in the Penan rainforest journeying out with their elders to create sago, a traditional dish. The book is also a first in the Penan language for a community struggling against the industrialisation of their region. Blake helmed the project with such strength, illustrating the pages and getting it made and distributed (600 copies have been hand delivered by him, with hundreds more to go). My role was to compile the pages and get it looking both beautiful and easy to read. (The book was printed on rainforest resistant plastic paper!). I couldn't help but share these beautiful photos by Maya Newell of the fantastic project.
