Redwood City, CA: Judith of Serebrin Books & Prints, 2012. Hardcover. Unique. A lovely set of miniature books with a powerful statement about cherishing and protecting biodiversity above and below ground. Both volumes are housed in a wooden box and are in Coptic bindings with repurposed wooden-board covers. In Above, the text reads: “Look around, Look up, Look down, What do you see? Protect Diversity. Above. Below. Everywhere we grow. Wake up! Wake up! What do you see? I see double jeopardy.” In Below, the text reads: “Things we barely know grow below. Look! Look! Not one above. Not one below. No Life, Sentient or other is unattached. We destroy. We extract, to our own Human peril.” This text winds through an underground landscape. Judith’s work explores the “interrelations between people, animals, and the planet in ways, she hopes, are accessible. Using book art as a format is part of that for her, as you can have an intimate experience holding a book and looking through it.” She received a master’s degree in fine arts from the University of Utah in 1990 and has been making limited editions and unique books since then. Her work can be found in public and private collections in the United States and abroad. Each volume is about 2.25 x 2 inches. The box is 3 x 2.25 x 2.5 inches. In fine condition. ARTB/032917. Fine.
