Giselle Simón

Giselle Simón, 1943 N. Winchester, Chicago, IL 60622

Description: Paper covered case binding; endsheets of handmade paper; artwork by the binder interspersed throughout text; rolled paper endbands; decor of blind stamping using images which appear throughout the book, with one a dry-point etching by the binder.

Binder's Statement: I was intrigued by the watermarks, blind stamping, and the overlaying of the images. The translucency of some of the papers gave way to more overlapping of paper, vellum paper, images and text creating a subtle mark-making.
