Jan 12, 1879 I would like to write a journal that my children could own and be benefited by if I were taken away. If I were to leave them now, what would they ever know about me?
from Margarets journals
The Artists Book is a unique, limited edition of 40 handmade books. I layered handwritten letters, diary extracts, faded family photographs, newspaper clippings and my own voice to create a unique historial account spanning five generations. To emphasize the notion of the womens lives and stories being connected by a time line, the pages fold out into a concertina-style book.
Each artists book is presented in a custom-made, cloth-covered
portfolio box, imprinted with the book title and artist's name, and tied with
a blue ribbon which echoes a line of blue text recurring in the book.
Number of pages: 30
