ONE OF 6 COPIES, 360 x 125 mm (folded). Eight short poetic texts and eight blocks of marbled colour hand-printed in yellow and blue on a single sheet of Chinese scroll paper, folded vertically, and bound accordion-style in boards of maroon cloth, with a silk ribbon wrap-around tie, hand-printed shoji paper cover title.


A new experiment in book-making by Barbara A Morton, pairing marbled rectangles with short poetic texts printed in similarly marbled ink. The work opens vertically and can be read like a book on its side or hung like a scroll.
