‘Book of Girls’ Beci Orpin


Thu 25 May 6:00pm - 9:00pm


Free, no booking required


55 Cromwell Street, Collingwood VIC, Australia


For as long as Beci Orpin has drawn, she has been obsessed with the female form. Book of Girls brings together over 30 years of manifestations of these forms into a book. From the early days of university drawing to designing t-shirts for clothing label Princess Tina to current day projects, Book of Girls presents an archival view of Beci’s work through her sketchbooks. The book presents a behind-the-scenes look into her process and various mediums she has worked in over the years, as well as a lense on the subcultures and movements she has been involved in along the way.
Book of Girls is a self-published project, designed by TRiC studios.
