Ingress / Egress is an artist's book that contemplates the design of artists' books. The intent of the piece is to encourage ideation on the theme "books are". The six French-fold books use geometry, visual design, text, and imagery to investigate topics such as "Books Are Architecture" and "Books Are Collections". The French folds are housed in a wrapper & clamshell enclosure. Books are letterpress printed on Japanese mulberry paper from photopolymer plates. The translucency of the mulberry paper produces layers of reading in each book, and the potential interaction of layers amongst the entire suite of books. 6"W x 9"H x 3/4"D
