Book of ten

  • — Artist's book
  • — Enclosed accordion
  • — 20 x 18 x 3 cms

Here is an artist’s book I made in collaboration with printmaker Sarah Christie Willis. This project, called ‘Book of Ten’, contains 10 exquisite copperplate etchings created by Sarah, which I bound together into an enclosed accordion book. Sarah gave me the prints on bigger sheets of paper and I trimmed them down to a matching size. Using subtle hinges made from strong Japanese paper on the backs of the prints, I bound them together to create an accordion book.

I then made the box using archival materials which will protect the prints in years to come. The bookcloth is a blue-grey colour – a subtle colour which draws your attention to the prints inside. The title ‘Book of Ten’ is embossed on the outside cover.
