A Thin Thread

Sketches of natural surroundings were the beginning of this book. The drawings evolved into dry point etchings. While I worked on the etchings I kept thinking about a short writing I completed years ago about encountering a bunch of twigs which were bound in a cobweb and “hanging by a thin thread.” This book is the gestalt of these components and serves as a reminder of the fragility of nature.

Double accordion sewn book form using dry point, wood cut, Arches 88 paper, Book Antigua type, vintage fabric, and thread. 6.75 x 5 x .5 inches. 2009. Edition of 2. $500
