Alisa Golden

more work by Alisa Golden

For Alisa Golden making books is the natural bridge between her writing and art. Through layered imagery and poetic language she invites the reader to experience multiple meanings, all bound in structures that echo the contents. After years of working precisely and creating editions using letterpress and printmaking techniques, she continues her explorations of the book form through handmade felt and multiple objects in her one-of-a-kind pieces. In addition to her studio practice she teaches at California College of the Arts where she is an adjunct professor. Alisa is the author of five instructional books: Creating Handmade Books, Unique Handmade Books, Expressive Handmade Books (Sterling Publishing), Painted Paper, and Making Handmade Books (Lark/Sterling, 2011).

Blueprints for a Birdhouse, Alisa Golden, The Art of the Book at Donna Seager Gallery

Blueprints for a Birdhouse

Every action, no matter how small, should be given the finest attention. Each personal act can help build a magnificent city for many. These are the concepts distilled in the few lines of text: Draw up a plan even for a birdhouse. Make it small. Build it with a bird's eye view.

The reader may move and remove three little birdhouses either on the city pages or the birdhouse pages, wherever s/he may choose.

Merino and New Zealand Romney wools; wool yarn; commercial wool felt; machine stitched drawings; wet felted and needlefelted; bound with embedded wool ties; felted birdhouse pins

Edition: unique

Dimensions: 8"w x 4 1/2"h x 3"d
