Textiles, tactility, texture, and hand labour/sewing are the main ‘threads’ pulled from Vickerson’s work. Our mission was to create a delicate hand-crafted book that feels like a natural extension of the exhibition for which it was designed. An intricate sewing pattern from the artists’ work is die-cut into the cover. The books were sewn one at a time on an old sewing machine and presented in a cheesecloth bag. This enabled the reader to discover and rediscover the book at every viewing.
Celebrating Vickerson’s attention to labour and detail, the book compliments her work without overshadowing it.
