Notes

Title from slipcase.

Limited ed. of 55 unique, but related pieces in this series.

"Between covers of kozo lace paper, laminated to a flax and linen base sheet, rests a playful, accordion-folded text. This 'pulp painting' (pigmented pulps manipulated during formation of the paper) incorporates bright colors and a heart motif across the ten pages. Gampi and kozo fibers, both natural and with artists' pigments, were used to create this one-of-a-kind art work."--Slipcase.

"This piece can be displayed by opening covers to a distance of 14" to 18" and standing the form up on a flat surface. It is, in fact, a tiny paper screen disguised as a book. Depending on the light source, it will reflect and transmit available light."--Slipcase.

Issued in a slipcase measuring 65 x 70 mm.
