"To bring Graham's metaphor to life, I've used a measuring tape to bind the book. The tape weaves into the pages, creating visual gaps. I've covered some pages with pattern pieces. The pattern paper may seem to obscure the text, but it also asks the reader to look between the lines at those seemingly useless spaces and gaps. The pattern pieces are different in each book.
"To a Friend... is printed letterpress from photopolymer plates on a hand-feed C&P platen press, using Adobe Minion on Copperplate paper. The binding structure was developed by Elizabeth Steiner. It is an ingeniously simple method of allowing single pages to be combined, with each successive leaf locking the previous leaf in place." -- The artist, cited from the author's website (, accessed 5/18/15)
