Evidence of Progress

The book uses primitive marks to indicate the passage of time. Original handmade paper using rehydrated cotton rag from my first paper, and pulp painted with day lily pulp. Traditional case binding with chemise and slipcase, using handmade paper, hand-dyed linen thread, and hand-dyed Tyvek. It is a single signature with pamphlet stitch. Doublure inlays of handmade, pulp painted paper. The purpose of the book is twofold. One is the visual evidence of the primitive marks, which have long been used to indicate the passage of time. The second is to show the progress of my first paper reworked into new, pulp-painted sheets twenty-nine years later. 8 x 5 x 0.25 inches, 20.5 x 12.5 x 0.5 centimeters. Created 2009.
