Bury via Victoria is a concertina artist book consisting of my observational drawings of the tram. 
I aimed to emulate in a book form the brightly lit windows full of commuters, rushing past the dark Manchester cityscape, consequently displaying the passengers for all to see. The type on the covers is letterpress printed, and the main body of images are printed onto tracing paper. I used this medium so when exhibited a light source can be put behind the piece to backlight it. The form of a concertina book is to emulate the trams movement through the city.
