About five years ago my children visited Japan together, skiing I think, and Tim actually came home with a number of perspex boxes for me which he had purchased. One of them was/is a 4 x 4 compartment box allowing for sixteen books to be displayed. I have been waiting since then to come up with an idea to fill those spaces and now that I am at week 20 of my 52 week project, I have decided that sixteen of my books can be housed in this perspex framework.
This is the first of those 16 to be housed (in fact it may be more as I may add multiples of books at a time) in this way. I am anticipating that most of these books will be sculptural, or at the very least photograph worthy and not necessarily have artistic content inside the book. This is quite rare for me as I have always used the 'book' as a vehicle for my artwork.
The book was made using cut down postcards with a simple coptic binding. It is quite lovely to handle as it is small and fluid in the hand though I think that the photographs do it more justice than it deserves.
