Edwards, CO: Helen Hiebert Studio, 2016. Artist's book, one of 10 copies, all on papers made by the artist, signed on the house-shaped book, VERTICES featuring the poem, "Vertex" by Sarah Kathryn Moore, on the colophon, which is also dated and hand-numbered. The book also comprises "Love in a Maze" a watermark print in an artist-made cotton / abaca blend paper, "The Fortune Teller,"an origami game featuring pulp printed symbols and hand-stitched text representing potential outcomes of perhaps the most consequential intersection of male and female, and the pink envelope with pulp printed symbols which is folded to house first three components, made from cotton / abaca blend paper. Size of envelope: 6-9/16 square. The house-shaped book is printed in pink, "Vertices" with an oval cut-out surrounded by hand-stitching. The text for the artist's statement tells us that VERTICES was created in response to the novella "Fantomia" for the exhibition "Just One Look" in Special Collections at the University of Washington Libraries. Texts were inkjet printed by the artist. The 4 parts of the book (which includes the envelope housing 3 parts) create a sculptural book / book object. (Inventory #: 11142)
