Glories Unfolding / Unfolding Glories

Small adhesive accordion book

1 1/4” square

Paper, maps

This was the first book I created after taking a bookbinding class in graduate school. Part of the nature of this book is that you can start on either side and the story will come out the same. This creates a circular narrative. Each side of a page corresponds to the content on the other side. One side starts with the title page Glories, the other, Unfolding.

Each of these images represents a specific memory or experience of my life, and while I could explain them all I don’t think that’s the point. While deeply personal, this book isn’t really about me, but about life in general. I’ll leave it at that.
