Passion Book

Book Concept & Design Westermann Studio
16mm Scans Pedro Maia
Music Vessel / Sebastian Gainsborough
Label Paplu
Catalogue Number Paplu002B
Printed by Newspaper Club


             Limited edition book made with the beautiful imagery of Pedro Maia for Vessel EP “Passion” release. This book centres around articulating the narrative of Vessel’s EP “Passion” utilising film stills from Maia’s companion film for Movement III (if the telephone rings I’ll be saved).


Watch the film here.




            These images sit alongside the movement’s lyrics, drawn from “The Passion According to GH” by Clarice Lispecto and re-assembled by Huw Thomas and Declan Pleydell to form the lyrical content.




            The images themselves, taken from the manipulated 16mm from Maia’s film, tell of a visual journey between light and shadow, exploring the space between joy and pain, stability and instability and the idea of constant transformation.
            The piece explores the mental health of the artist, not in such a way as to dwell on the negative but more specifically describing “an unwell mind that, whether or not it’s a good idea, is prodding around in a wound in the hope of feeling something transcendental, or more realistically, just feeling less bad”.
            The ambition behind this book is to create a more environmentally sound artefact to celebrate Paplu’s release of Vessel’s “Passion” than a standard vinyl release. Paplu will look towards ways to lessen their impact on the environment by looking to vinyl alternatives where there may be other options.
