Title

All, extraordinary, scenic, society

Description

Machine-sewn catalog cards containing inkjet prints of images and text.
This artist book, made from 12 cards, is machine stitched and inkjet printed. It’s titled after four words extracted from the book titles on each card: ALL, EXTRAORDINARY, SCENIC, SOCIETY. It includes images from a children’s encyclopedia printed in 1962. When the book is folded, the holes on each card are aligned to fit a string closing the book. I had fun making this book. It was like a puzzle fitting all the pieces together: size, titles, hole, theme, images and stitching.
