Kimono/kosode : a decorative study of the kimono by Carol Schwartzott( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like the unwrapping of a graceful garment's may layers KIMONO KOSODE invites you to explore. A simple repeated design - the smooth, matte surface of each section - beckons one to touch it; a cut-out kimono reveals a hint of what lies underneath. Unfolding the pages once, and again, displays the many panels of color. Kimono/Kosode has a piano-hinge construction of six rigid sections, each forming one trifold page. The book lies flat, but when displayed on edge with the pages flipped open, a tiny multi-dimensional theater appears and the kimono becomes a window. Each trifold section also contains an attached text, giving a brief descriptive hsitory of the kimono. These pages are printed letterpress on hand-dyed Japanese Yohko paper, floating, thin and gossamer, against the matboard surface."
Worldwise by Linda K Johnson( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Worldwise' by Linda K. Johnson, the recipient of the 2003 Library Fellows artist's book grant, juxtaposes visually and historically rich nineteenth-century maps with ancient proverbs from all corners of the earth. Thirty-two proverbs from cultures as diverse as Australian Aboriginal, Yiddish and Tibetan are presented in four small folded-book sections against a backdrop of old-world maps. The assembled book is a circle within a square, the circular shape of the case representing the world and the four book sections its four corners. Each of the four maps opens to form a four-point star and closes to a square that is housed in one of four compartments of this circular case."

Thoughts on color, color of thoughts by Beth Weiss( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Wondrous Mystic Art,' a poem by William Massey, comprises the center of the limited-edition artist's book and serves as its theme. Weiss selected quotations by painters, wirters, and musicians about the artistic process to accompany phrases from the poem. These she interpreted in callifraphy and screen-pritned as the 20-page text. A circular cutout in the heavy cover highlights the title log. Marbled paper, which covers the spine, complements the visible title page. The artist placed the pages horizontally and vertically in a 10-inch square format so viewers looking at one spread can also see snatches of prevous and subsequent pages. This intricate layout conceals and reveals several visual puns."
The streets of used to be : the poetry of Carol A. Beane and the images of Renée Stout by Carol Anne Beane( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This selection of Beane's poems evokes cityscapes, life in and on the streets, people biding time, efforts to survive with some measure of dignity, often while enveloped in pain or delicately balancing on the verge of quiet desperation. Stout's intense colors and nuances, together with the fine specificit of her delineations, capture the sense of solitary people, objects, spaces-signs of presence and absence, signifier of condition."

A man may work from sun to sun, but, a woman's work is never done by Laurie Jean Jackson( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the past three years my work has focused on the division of household labor between a husband and a wife. Currently, I am a working mother whose time is divided between teaching, doing my art, caring for my house, and caring for my child. Thought I have found that my husband does assist with the household chores, his partiicipation is more voluntary than necessary. Consequently, as illustrated by my etchings, I do not have the option of not doing the housework; as a wife and mother I have obligations. The box housing the book resembles a kitchen cabinet, and I have to add -- it was built by my husband."
