What is a book? A sequence within a cover? A study of form and time?
An egg is a body formed within a female body. What stories can an egg tell? What narratives are possible within an oval?
Monica hinged two egg-shell pieces to make a spineless book (see the feature image above). The endpapers are a decorated textile that line the inner shell. She will try a traditional marbled endpaper for the next egg book.
The pages are hand-dyed, cold-pressed watercolour paper cut into descending ovals threaded onto cotton floss. The dye was leftover from egg work at Easter.
How would you make a spineless egg book?
