About this Item

ÒThis book emerged from my affinity with doorways and apertures and what they represent: entry to the unknown, the mystery and intrigue of what lies beyond, just glimpsed through the crack in the wood, a spiritual crossing point into realms of change and discoveryÉ" (artist's statement). 8 x 4." [56] pp. Two full-page images and twelve double-page images of doorways, made from the artist's own photographs and drawings. Quote from Marge Piercy pasted in: "We seek not rest but transformation. We are dancing through each other as doorways." Printed on handmade paper and signed twice by the artist. In a Coptic binding, composed of a series of bifolds bound between boards altered and aged to the appearance of an old brace-and-ledger door, suede end-papers, button mounted on front cover to represent a doorknob. A fine copy, with the binding square and tight. Signed twice by the artist. A unique artist's book. "Dea Fischer is an internationally sought teacher and book artist with works held in special, public and private collections in Canada, the United States, England, Korea and Japan. Having left a demanding professional career to make time and room for art, Dea is now the conservator for a public library and teaches popular courses in bookbinding, altered books, collage and low tech image creation. Dea has a slow-burning love affair with books, collage and low-tech photography. In her off hours, she engages her community in acts of random creation" (from the artist's website).
