Artists’ Books in Howard Gardens library – a book a day in October – day 10!

X=Xanthic by Melanie Bush

Artist’s description:

A response to the London based Bookartsbookshop’s 10th anniversary competition theme of X=. Referring to a previous artists’ book of mine – ‘Abecedarium for Bibliopoesy’ (2007) – a dictionary for book artists, I found the word Xanthic meaning yellow. This lead to visual experimentation round this and other words such as xanthophyll and xerocopy.  The X itself was a focus for further experimentation. Each of the 10 books have the same contents but with random variations, including the ‘yellow’ pages from my last project – ‘Seed/Grow/Harvest’.
