(Scripps College Press)

Arch.

Claremont, CA: Scripps College Press, 2010. Slender quarto. Unpaginated. One of 109 copies, signed by all the artists, who at the time were students at Scripps College, and by Kitty Maryatt, their supervisor. Clever structural use of red, green, tan, and gray papers, paired with original text and typography, evoke the similarities between books and buildings. Maryatt's introduction points out the serendipitous circumstances preceding the book: a 2010 Los Angeles Times article discussed contemporary women architects at roughly the same time that Scripps' President chose "The Genius of Women" as the yearly theme. All the students involved in the production were women, and some of their texts incorporate the social status of women. Self-wrappers arranged in a tiered tower, and housed in an acrylic slipcase. A highly polished student production. Fine. Item #31703

Price: $450.00
