Blackson, Ruth Scott.  Life of a weave. Nottingham, England: Artist Studio, 2012. 16mo ( 6" x 11").
$1,000.00

Ruth Scott Blackson's near-kinetic artist's "flag" book "Life of a Weave" is best appreciated for its movement in the moments after it is opened, as thin woven strips of light polymer paper in bright pink and yellow burst a'quiver from an accordion binding.
        => The weave is, indeed, lively!
        Binding: Yellow spine paper over grey boards, the covers further supplied with deep rose-pink paper slip-on over-sheaths which, according to the artist, were constructed by "a specific type of folding in case you ever wanted to change the covers. They slip on and off quite easily, nice and versatile and good for non-adhesive books."

Fine, and => one-of-a-kind.  (40353)   Please RESHELVE This.
