Nine Months Title

Published by the Avenue Press in a limited edition of only 266 copies. Wire bound and printed on heavy-weight acid-free paper. Covered in Canson paper with a specially screen-printed design.

Called ‘Nine Months’, it is an amusing romp through the most important three seasons in a woman’s life. The book is completely wordless, but tells the story in pictures of one woman and her pregnancy, mirrored by the changing seasons.

It is illustrated by linocut artist Elizabeth Rashley:

“Pregnancy is such an exciting time, I wanted to get that very special feeling of growth and anticipation in the book.”

Avenue Press publisher David Bailey:

“We’ve previously produce very beautifully-bound exclusive editions, which have original artist’s prints, with books in boxes and slip-cases, using only the finest of materials. We thought it would be a great idea to produce some inexpensive smaller books from a wide range of new artists to show the wealth of talent that’s available in the South West. We’ve called the series ‘Offcut Editions’ because they’re all printed on offcuts of paper from our larger books. They’re a great way of using all those extra bits of paper – yet they receive exactly the same amount of care and attention as our larger books. We weren’t sure how many copies we should print of Nine Months, but then I realised it was obvious, and we’ve created 266 copies – because that’s how many days there are in a pregnancy!”

Every copy of ‘Nine Months’ is signed by the artist.

“Something we think is important, is that all of the materials used are acid-free which means it is made to last and won’t yellow or crumble with age. All our books are made to last.”

Avenue Press publisher David Bailey:

“This is a wonderful example of a picture book for adults. It’s cheeky and great fun – and it will make a super gift for any pregnant mum-to be.”
