McCall's Multi-Blue is an interdisciplinary collaboration between a spatial interior designer, Belinda Mitchell and Eileen White. The book examines the relationship between contemporary book art practices and architecture, engineering, landscape and construction as a form, function and structure, reimagining ways either books or buildings can inhabit and shape the world. The form of this book is being used to explore representations of interiority and how this language might be used to inform alternative methods of making buildings. It references a timber floor joint from a C16th manor house in Portsmouth as a synecdoche to discuss the affective qualities of the manor. The book investigates the immaterial and material qualities of the joist through drawn and written representations. Drawings of the timer are layered into the cover as a way of 'touching' its past histories and ongoing life as it decays.
