Huckleberry Finn (2003/2016) Mark Twain. 18 inches long x 16 inches wide x 3 inches tall. A one-of-a-kind artists' book inspired Twain's text.
Artists' statement: Huckleberry Finn has always been a favorite book. The passages we most enjoy are found in Twain’s descriptions of Huck and Jim’s conversations as they roll down the river. This book is part of a series of explorations we have made to find alternative structures to use for our artists’ books. In this series we have experimented with the possible intersections of the codex and scroll formats. In this work Huck and Jim’s rolling informed our artistic imagination and led us to imagine how sections of a story might be scrolled and stored in various compartments that would create the structure of a raft.
