Harriet Bart, The Poetry of Chance Encounters, 2003
The Poetry of Chance Encounters is bound in the French technique in butter-colored goat. The cover design utilizes the incision technique, with thin lines of leather pulled and painted to depict the shapes. Other design elements include hand-sewn silk endbands, leather hinges, and matching butter-colored suede pastedowns and flyleaves. "Harriet Bart's combination on each page of a discovered 'ancient object' - some described as vessels - carefully composed over found 'early signs of writing' completely captured my imagination. The objects themselves provided inspiration for the chosen shapes; their gold color suggested an avenue for the tooled band across the waist of the book cover. The combination became an homage to Bart's seek-and-find in the interior."
