Notes:
“I've made new scans of the backs and fronts of the swatches. I'm not completely convinced by the tallness of the proportion-taken from the things themselves-rather than what might be 'a good shape for a page'. What i do like is the offering of the possibility of choosing a paper, as you might the actual material itself ... your poems parallel with the colour sequence 40-53 that i've put together over the 28 pages. It's moving towards a much more straightforward book, rather than an elaborate construction that I first thought.”--Artist's website.
