December 1: The Hunt

December 1: The Hunt is a twelve-panel accordion housed in a functional wind-up metronome case fitted with a custom lid of wood and leather. The text block is laser print transfer on tinted Tyvek with covers of paper-wrapped steel. The steel enables magnets to hold the book vertically inside the lid when closed. The outside cover is adorned with mica and a hand-painted label. Threaded posts and nuts hold the lid in place when closed. Text by Cole Swensen, design and fabrication by Alicia Bailey. 9 x 4.5 x 4.75 inches, 23 x 11.5 x 12 centimeters. Created 2009.
