Join us for: Oaths? Questions? by Marjorie Welish, James Siena
Granary Books, 2009. Item #GB_145
7 x 11 in., 32 pp., cloth over boards with Plexi slipcase.
Commissioned by Granary Books to create an innovative book-object, Marjorie Welish conceived it on a graphical / lexical nexus wherein the nature of seeing the page and reading the page continually challenge each other; and she invited artist James Siena to interpret this conception in his own way, both in visual and verbal terms. To the end, the most conspicuous feature is the very structure of the book: transparent pages interleave opaque pages, the very turning of these induces a dynamic and problematic set of choices to be engaged.
