This book addresses the premise that life’s challenges, however horrible, are learning, refining experiences and attitude is significant in achieving positive outcomes. I have explored the theme over two years with book-art objects, Adversity Timeline and Rock Book leading to a codex-style book with ‘hidden disruptions’ of the form. As an art-object, the book engages on many levels, with textures, rustling pages, complex imagery and construction.
It has leather covers, hand-tooled, pierced and stitched, with an exposed spine. The book is sewn on cords so it opens flat.
( a donation from each sale will be made to the two charities represented by hidden stories in the book, Artists For Trauma and A Little Thunder).
Edition of 10.
