Another and finally at long last completed book . This has been over two years in the making. Many many versions have been fiddled and manipulated, heaven only knows why I have put so many processes into one tiny little book making it intricate and complicated to make....never again. But I am very happy with the final result and it has an interesting destination which I will divulge soon.
Folded, embossed, stitched and dotted with text from an old Eastern block typewriter, (called Erika!) the ‘Snow Book’ is a culmination of work started on a residency in Quebec City and completed in the UK.
