Engram is an etched concertina book, hand finished with watercolour paint. The book has collagraph printed end papers, with a book cloth cover and hand tooled lettering. The book is part of a series of pieces exploring place and ideas around mapping both physical and emotional space. This piece depicts a memory trace, an engram, and uses processes to support its meaning such as etching and blind tooling, techniques that leave permanent marks on surfaces as experience does on individuals.

Louisa Boyd graduated in 2001 from the Manchester Metropolitan University after studying Embroidery and showed a series of artist’s books as her final pieces. These were recognised and awarded at The New Designers Show in London in the same year. She has since worked as an artist exhibiting and selling her books and paintings with galleries both in the UK and internationally. Louisa’s work has been featured in a number of publications and included in international public collections.
