This artist’s book traces a childhood friendship into adulthood. Each spread covers an academic year, starting in September 1975 and running to August 1995. The opening spread begins with the boys aged 8 at the start of a Jesuit education, with the last spread 20 years later. The book’s title, A.M.D.G., is an abbreviation of the Jesuit motto Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam (To the Greater Glory of God). These letters were written as the heading for all schoolwork during the time with the Jesuits. The book is structured so that the reader's tactile experience is central to the narrative. This is achieved by contrasting the imprint of etching and the flatness of screen printing sequentially to play with the surface qualities of the page.
