This one off artist book was the result of an exploration of the concept of ‘secret’ by instead creating the conceptual opposite; an unveiling of the so-called Secret Belgian Binding technique, by using transparent covers and translucent paper to reveal the stitches hidden within.
Bright red thread was used for the interior/spine sewing, to contrast fully with the vellum-like pages and to remain visible beneath the diaphonous spine covering. The finished book, though perfectly solid, retains an ethereal and ghost-like quality hinting at further secrets or mystery.
What does it say to you? What do you read in it? Presented in a custom made protective enclosure. Book measures 8cm x 11cm.
