Book art can be an awe-inspiring project that covers entire city blocks, or it can be a piece of embroidery that fits into the space between hand and person.
Within that space, there lies a certain immediacy and trust. Pair it with traditions from embroidery that also invoke that personal space, subvert the ideas held about each, and you create pieces that are both comforting and unsettling, expected and extraordinary.
