Dual Horizons, 2012

The horizons that inspired Dual Horizons by Veda and Meda Rives are of a very personal nature. Literally, they recall the views of the horizons that nurtured us while growing up on our family farm. Metaphorically, they are reminders of the constant in a changing world. The cycle of the day in relationship to the horizons is traced in the imagery of the pigmented handmade paper, which may be viewed on the recto and verso consecutively or simultaneously when the book is backlit. The original verse is hand set in Bernhard Tango and hand printed. The accordion structure allows for variable display and mimics the ins and outs, the coming and goings, of the sun in relationship to the horizons and in our lives.
