Gene Epstein from Group 7 gave me permission to include part of an email she wrote me, which includes some background on the edition she produced for her title, Delicate. (She mentioned that she isn't very comfortable with going such things on the computer.) I have also included a few photos I took of the copy I received from her.
I have been experimenting with folded book sculptures for several years. Last year I rescued a carload of 80 year old Chinese books that were destined for recycling, and have been exploring ways to use them as sculpture. I chose that one to duplicate because it seemed easiest to mail, plus it was a favorite of one of my artist friend.
So, thank you very much to Gene. You did a lovely job of expressing the concept of 'delicate'...
