52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textiles: Week 29

Textile Books

Today I visited the National Museum of African Art to meet my mentor and show her fifteen new textile pages.
 I've been interested in how we read textile pages before they are bound and after they are bound.
One of the things I've noticed is how people tend to hold the unfinished pages much longer when the pages are unbound.  They seem less afraid to "handle" the pages and seem to enjoy looking at the back stitching and artwork.  (Once the pages are bound, the backsides are no longer visible.)

Textile--texture--art. We're taught from an early age, not to touch. Hell--alarms will go off if we touch. The police will be called in, our lives will be ruined.

Thank you! xoxo
