New York: Béatrice Coron, 2014. Paperback. Number 2 of 6 copies. This poignant yet also exuberant book is a collaboration by well known book artist Béatrice Coron with painter, Laura James, and poet, Tiffany Osedra Miller. Coron describes her book work: "For more than 20 years I have been exploring visual storytelling in artist books, paper cutting and public art. Collecting memories from individuals and communities, I stage narrative allegories in silhouette to create a dialogue with the viewer in playful fantasies. These visual chronicles record archetypal stories that transcend time and space. I have been fascinated by the relation of people to their space and the sense of belonging. Using papercutting where everything is cut from a single piece of Tyvek, the profusion of individual stories makes a coherent whole world." [From her website]. In this accordion book, Coron's evocative papercuts are married to Laura James's colorful painted pages, with Miller's lovely poem handwritten across the pages in black. The covers are black with a white and red title label to the front and colophon on rear cover. The backs of the pages are painted gold. Hand-cut and painted on Arches paper with hand-written text. Housed in a yellow cloth covered book case. Size: 66 x 6 inches when open. 5 x 5.5 inches when closed. Unpaginated [10 pages] ARTB/081921. Fine.
