Woolf I - IX

Nine novels

by Virginia Woolf.

Nine fine bindings

by Annette Friedrich.

 

 

 

In this project, Annette set out to bind all nine novels by Virginia Woolf in chronological order.

The concept created a framework that allowed the gradual exploration of new territory. 

 

How would Woolf's increasingly fractured and non-linear approach within narrative and language find expression on Annette's fine bindings? How was 'looseness & lightness' possible, humour, as well as poetry?    

 

Taking one step at a time (and not peeking ahead), the project took seven years to complete.
