The Heart Book
Accordion fold; cover: Japanese paper with linocut hearts; inside: linocut on cartridge paper. Dimensions: 5 inches square (12.7 cm square)
I made this accordion fold for my partner on the occasion of our third anniversary. There are 36 pages, each one commemorating an event that happened each month for our first 3 years together. The hearts on the pages are printed linocuts. This book speaks to heightened senses that accompany the beginning of relationships, where events remain clear in our minds, like perfect dew drops.
