Passages/Habits.

Davidson, Laura (illus.)

Boston: 1991. Unique book art object, signed and dated by the artist, made from wood, acrylic, paper, ink, and metal keys. Constructed as a temple, the statuesque object has two swinging doors on which Davidson has inked a Hindu tale; this and other designs are presented over excised maps and travelogues, creating a multimedia collage. The pillared templed stands upon a platform ornamented with six keys, each labeled "a" through "d" (there are multiple for "b") to mirror the coordinate grid of the map. The whole is a companion piece to Davidson's first editioned book, To Open, completed in the same year. Fine. Housed in custom box. (12 by 10 1/4 by 3 5/8 in.; 340 x 264 x 94 mm). Item #33367

Price: $1,250.00
