Summary

An artists' book telling the story of two islands, Maximin's ex-ile Guadalupe and the island of Australia for the artists Hartog-Gautier and Lee. The handmade paper becomes an island lifted out of the water leaving traces of text and art exploring the themes of migration, travel and exile, memory, geography, language and history all bound to suggest a suitcase which is akin to a book sharing within it the most precious of possessions - memory and artifacts.

Notes

Limited ed. 15 signed and numbered copies. Etchings, chine collé, aquatint and ink drawings used by the artists.

A handmade book on handmade paper using cotton.

The acrylic rod is threaded through the leather straps containing the book becoming a suitcase with a handle reminiscent of travel and migration.

In French with parallel English.

Library's copy is no. 3
