Cut It Out
Sorry for the delayed post; it's a holiday week up here. We'll keep it simple with just a few shots from Barbara's upcoming book, Mrs Delany Meets Herr Haeckel. A completed set of sheets stopped by the studio before getting shipped off to Claudia's bindery.
The sense of depth & shadow that Barbara achieved with the cut-outs in the book are stunning. One page, which precedes a new section, yields an unexpected effect when turned, almost like a prism, where the light strikes the underlying page. We spent a few minutes playing with just that page!
Binding work proceeds. Final details about the book will be going out to our booksellers soon. If you're a collector interested in the book, get in touch with one of HM's booksellers now to reserve one of the 25 copies.
