Description

”At last” is an accordion style artists' book that features altogether nine images of collaged cut-up poetry and b&w self portraits. The images are printed on translucent Japanese paper, which is also used to hinge the framed pages to one another.

The pages measure 6x6 cm / 2.4"x2.4", and the book measures 69,5 cm / 27.4" long fully opened.

At last is an artists' book with a signed and numbered edition of six. This listing is for one book.


The full text reads:

”exposed:
large quantities of skin

your kiss:
upon my eyelid

too brief:
our private pain

asleep and waking:
my hands blossom

darling:
I saw how the night came,
smouldering, not reluctant”

Gift this to your darling, or cherish it as your own personal treasure. The book arrives wrapped in Japanese paper tied up with black hemp string, all ready for gifting.


Made by a master bookbinder, with a great attention to even the tiniest of details.

FAQs

I don’t currently make any custom order books, and it’s not really something I expect to change any time in the near future. My Aspergers has the most effect on my time and stress management skills (and sadly I find all sorts of negotiation extremely stressfull, even if it’s with nice people about nice matters), and I’ve simply found it’s best for my health to work at my own pace. This way I can always guarantee the high quality of my work I hold so important. Nothing is designed or finished in a rush, so you can trust you’re always getting the best product possible.
Free gift wrapping!

Your order will always arrive gift wrapped in a nice, minimalistic manner, all ready for gifting, or for treating yourself to something special. I also include in my orders a mini bio, as well as a small info about the history of Coptic bindings if your order includes one.

If your order is a gift to someone, I'm happy to include a small note from you to the recipient at no extra cost! Just leave me a message about it during checkout, and I'll take care of it.
