Toolshed Journal - by Lee John Phillips
In 2013, illustrator Lee John Phillips began a project of one drawing a day, documenting the miscellanea from his late grandfather's shed. Phillips' Shed Project has enjoyed widespread coverage in the media and around the world.
This lovingly commemorated and beautifully designed journal features 40 illustrations from Phillips' "Shed Project". With its wood effect cover and three different paper stocks, the Toolshed Journal is a wonderful memorial and daily journal. Pages are either blank or grid-ruled for illustrations or notes.
In his own words:
"My grandfather, Handel Jones, died in 1994. His shed has remained relatively untouched. My grandmother treats it as a mausoleum.
He was a practical man and would spend a great deal of time in that shed fixing, salvaging, and making. Broken items were stripped of their parts and components sorted into relevant containers. Nothing was thrown away.
In 2013 I completed one drawing a day in the same sketchbook for the whole year. I decided that 2014 would see me complete an item a day from the shed in a similar fashion."
