This fabric book must be unbuttoned to read the text of Lorna Crozier's wonderful poem of the same name. The books were screen-printed in an eccentric edition of 10, as the fabric came from my stash: I am still trying to REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE. The buttons used came from the collections of Norma Homer (a good friend), Pauline Melhorn (my mother) and Reta Boe (my grandmother-in-law.)
2018, Kingston, ON. 5 pages, split. (14 1/2 x 8 1/2 x 1 1/2″) Erratic edition of 10. $700
This fabric book resembles a needle book, complete with the needles (reader beware!) and some other surprises. The text is screen-printed. Thanks to Janet Elliott for some of the needles.

Zipper's pages must be unzipped to read the text. As the title indicates, Lorna Crozier's poem and this book are about the characteristics of a zipper – its uses and connotations: Zippers are "sexiest on the back of a dress a woman can’t do up on her own. She lifts the hair on her neck and arches her back while someone behind her slowly pulls the metal tag up over vertebra after vertebra to the top.” The text is screen printed with Thermofax-generated screens, thanks to Peta Bailey.
2018, Kingston, 5 1/2 pages. (10 3/4 x 7 1/2 x 2 1/2″) Erratic edition of 10. $900
