Westhampton, Massachusetts:: Ann P. Lewis,, 2014.. One-of-a-Kind. 8.5 x 6.5 x 5.5" found metal filebox with hinged lid housing 25 books. Paper title label on front side slipped into metal id holder. Table of contents tipped to underside of lid. Books divided by ABC file tab cards. Each book signed and dated by the artist. Ann Lewis: "Alphabetically organized, each book loosely referring to the given letter in the sequence. The cumulative result is a catalog of daily reflections and visual/textual puns. I am using a simple book structure that is readily available to anyone with a sheet of paper and a sharp X-Acto blade. I relish this non-fussy, accessible approach to bookmaking. "'To-go' refers to this accessible and portable nature of small, tactile, intriguing books. Each file letter corresponds to a hidden foldbook with a loose reference to the letter. For instance: A = 'Aerial View of Landscape or Artisanal Cracker?', B = 'Feeling Blue?', C = 'Color', D = 'You Are Such a Drip.' "The collection is housed in a file box that one could conceivably tote anywhere, thereby making book arts more accessible, rather than being squirreled away in a vault or the far reaches of the library. Many people (a class of students) could look at the quirky little collection at one time. The actual book form is also accessible and would hopefully inspire others to make something unique or a sheet of 8½ x 11 paper.
