Washington DC: 2012-2013. Hardcover. Limited to 7 copies. These three fascinating volumes comprise the Non-Boundaries Series. They document a project undertaken by Zussman in which a group of people was asked to categorize a list of forty-two interactions between memory and reality into three to five categories. The book artist states: "This project has been a physical fulfillment of the question of whether there is any conscious common ground to the way we categorize unfamiliar phenomena and interactions that haven't been categorized for us in advance." The first volume provides the categories representing each participant's grouping and categorization of the interactions. In the second volume, participants were asked to map up to five interactions from the same list, using Euclidean geometric tools of a dot and a line. The third volume uses Jeremy Bentham's circular structure, the Panopticon to explore the interactions between memory and reality from the first two volumes. Each volume is bound in white laminate covers with the title printed in black on the cover. In fine condition. 8 x 10 inches, Unpaginated. This set may require an extra shipping fee.

Washington DC: Na'ama Zussman, 2015. Hardcover. Number 7 of 12 copies. A beautifully conceived and produced book from Na'ama Zussman, a powerful new book artist originally from Israel. She describes her book: "A Survey of a World scrutinizes interactions between map and territory, along with memory and reality, whether of the surveyor herself - the creator of this artist's book - or of other people. It surveys and seeks to capture the doubt in the role of the surveyor, and the inevitable immersion in this role. A Survey of a World portrays the endeavour of grasping the moment ahead of the impression of the territory, when doubt turns into representation." Na'ama's exquisite images are interwoven with her evocative text as she ponders interactions, memory, and reality. Bound in brown Cialux book cloth, with a goatskin leather spine. The images throughout the book were created through the screen printing process and are done on lovely Thai Kozo paper. The text is composed in Meta Capitals and Constantia. The book is housed in a surveyor's bag made out of grey cashmere, with a leather string. The colophon is in a pocket on the back of the bag. 7 1/4 x 9 3/4 inches. Unpaginated. ARTISTS/081915. Fine.
