This luxurious box set includes facsimiles of Francesca Woodman’s eight remarkable artist’s books, containing replicas of her original silver gelatin prints and transparencies, each tipped in by hand. Every book is unique in its production and form, reflecting the variety of materials in Woodman’s original works. These eight volumes are collected together in a clamshell slipcase, bound in a mulberry-coloured Japanese material.
As well as including the known artist’s books by Woodman, notably Some Disordered Interior Geometries, this box set also presents two newly discovered books that have never before been seen or exhibited.
The books which Woodman repurposed for her own process were bought in local shops and flea markets during her travels in Italy and provide intriguing backgrounds onto which she pasted her prints and transparencies. Collected together, these objects demonstrate a sophisticated relationship to narrative and sequence and offer a new understanding of the scope of Woodman’s engagement with the book form.
