Commentary

Dog Ears (2014–2016) is the second volume of a projected series of studio readers, made periodically from collected dog ears found in books in my studio. This collection is made almost entirely from books borrowed from the Rijkskademie van beeldende kunsten library prior to and during a residency there in 2015 and 2016. Designed with Barbara Iwanicka, it includes a text by Mariëtta Dirker. Printed on demand at Sil’s Drukwerk and bound at Agia & Lith, both Amsterdam.

Available directly from 7.45 Books.
