Book of Pages: 2000–2020

Although the first version of Book of Pages was written and illustrated almost a decade earlier, it was published in 2000. The book’s illustrations are black-and-white line art. To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of their publication, here is how the pages might have looked had they been in colour, thanks to Jiriki’s friend Claudia.


Page 13: Making a lifeless living



Jiriki wanders through the sleazy money district on page 13. “Peep at milled edges”.

In fact, the next scene was going to be inside one of the money emporiums... but it got dropped in the edit and never made it into the book. You can see the illustration in the scrapbook.
