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.
The book launch of the documentation 'Woolf I - IX' coincided with the groups' first presentation at Collect18 at the Saatchi Gallery, London.
98pp, with an introductory essay and 1:1 reproductions of the bindings, background information, and text excerpts.
