This new book has been published in collaboration with artist Margaret Salmon, following on from her solo exhibition at Dundee Contemporary Arts during the winter of 2018-2019. It takes the form of a visual journey through the Esperanto alphabet, where each letter and connected word is accompanied by a corresponding black and white 10x8 format photograph taken by the artist. This photographic series builds throughout the publication to form a beautiful and intimate document of the people, animals, plants and objects that Salmon has come into contact with throughout the winter of 2019-2020. The book also contains a letter to the reader written by the artist, expressing a longstanding fascination with different acts of looking and reading, and hinting at the transformative powers of unique linguistic constructions like the Esperanto language. K is for Kato is intended for readers of any age, and contains a helpful letter/sound index to aid the understanding and pronunciation of each word.
