A lotus fold artists' book

Fragments from my next obsession: Milk Wood

When my (forty nine years is) Seven Times Seven project was in its first seedlings of germination I hadn't yet decided to make it a project of seven artists' books.  At this time I was also experimenting with the plastic from milk bottles, work which would develop to become Milk Wood. Already knowing that I was interested in sevens, I made a number of plastic elements using this constraint.  It felt important that these should be incorporated into a book somehow and after playing with various ideas I decided to use photographs of seven of the elements shadows.  I worked with these further to create digital repeating, yet not fully symmetrical, collages which were then printed and prepared to make this lotus fold book.
