Angelique and the Pearl Necklace:
An Homage to Sail

Donald Glaister. Foolsgold Studio, Vashon Island, Washington, 2007. 15 1/4”x 9 1/4” page size.

Angelique combines a two-part poem with studies of the materials used to make sail boats, and explorations of the spirit of sailing and the rhythm of the sea. The binding is quarter leather with painted cloth over sculpted boards. Most of the book’s painted, stiffened fabric pages have original collages of painted cloth, wood veneer, brass, cork, linen thread and acrylic paint - all materials used in boat building. Issue size: 60 variants.
