Combining sketches, diary notes and wall drawings, Paul Ryan’s exhibition Rebound illuminated the changing perception of HIV in London over a period of 20 years: from 1986, when the first clear information about HIV emerged, to 2006, when successful treatment regimes had been established. We designed a small publication of reproductions of Ryan’s notes and sketches about the experience of caring for, grieving for and sometimes seeing the return to health of those close to him. The pages of the booklet were three-hole-sewn with red thread.
