Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own and Other Essays

I have had a love of Virginia Woolf for a long time, and see her work as seminal to the formation of much feminist thought. A Room of One's Own exemplifies this influence, with Woolf speaking to what is necessary in order for women to create art. She talks about a ripple effect that happens when one woman's voice is amplified; suddenly it becomes much more possible for others to be heard. I chose to embroider modern authors I admire on the covers, while Woolf appears on the doublures, providing a foundation that has helped to form the world into which these female voices have emerged.

Covered in goatskin with buffalo back-pared onlays, buffalo edge-to-edge doublures, hand embroidery, linen endbands, paste papers flyleaves by the binder, acrylic edge decoration. 9.75 x 6.25 x 2 inches. 24.5 x 16 x 5 centimeters. Created 2018.

JACKIE SCOTT is a bookbinder and the senior book conservation technician at the Northeast Document Conservation Center. She received an undergraduate degree in English and studio art, and combined her love of literature and making into a degree in bookbinding from the North Bennet Street School. Her work has been exhibited nationally and is held in private collections.
