Slow by Sally Hagy-Boyer
My first awareness of most of the books in shows at Abecedarian is usually via still images of the book. No matter how many images and details of a book I see ahead of time, there are always aspects of the works that are only apparent on direct examination. Things like texture, smell, the action and rustle of the pages while being read and so forth are only apparent after the book is in one’s hands. This book in particular exceeded my expectations.
Sally Hagy-Boyer grew up in Chicago, Ill and recently graduated from San Diego State with an art degree. She has been making artist books since 1999. Her work is in public and private collections.
Produced in an edition of 5, priced at $950
