Item Details

Housebound.

Portland, ME: Artist Book, 1999. Unique Edition. Hardcover. In the artist's words, "I'd been making things using house shapes for several years, was kind of tired of them, and thought this would be the last one. No, it wasn't." In a period where a fair bit of "book art" is glib, Cawley's work is subtle and engaging. Where much is to be seen once, enjoyed and forgotten, Cawley's begs "rereading", as with each rereading one is able to trick out another nuance...another wee tale. Cawley is emerging as a fresh and sophisticated voice in American book arts. Fine. Item #5111 Tight, bright and unmarred (tighter than one might expect). Hand painted black paper boards. 32mo. Coptic binding. Materials: Mylar, upholstery thread, rug-hooking canvas, paste paper.
Price: $375.00     Item #5111
