A Few Questions

Donald Glaister, Foolsgold Studio, Vashon Island Washington, 2009. 8”x8” page size. Polyester film, acrylic paint and paper.

An informal exploration of the nature of matter, existence and time, in a prose piece of 99 words. The book is a progression of sanded polyester film encapsulations, similar to those used in document conservation, which are bound with paper hinges. They envelop layered paintings, drawings and type on paper and transparent film, producing an effect of depth and space within each page. The binding is made with encapsulations similarly constructed. Issue size: 12 variants.
