Observer Series: Birds

This sculptured book is from the Observer series published between 1950-1970. It can still be read as a complete book.

In the construction, this book produces random words for a found poem presented, with images, in the accompanying unique book. The birds are hand cut in their original position in the altered book. The images and text in the unique book are digitally printed .The book is a concertina, case bound book construction. 195mm x 95mm. Both books are housed in an acrylic box. The Observer book behind a sliding door and the unique book in the slip case below.

'The book, like a gallery, is a space apart, a quiet place to which we may bring a generosity of attention.'
Thomas A. Clark
