The Pharmacist’s Daughter is a ‘boxed book’ piece by Jody Alexander created in 2005 based on the character of the same name. The Pharmacist’s daughter used thread and stitching to heal, mimicking the actions of her father. The viewer is asked to fill in the rest of the story. Housed within the wooden box are glass bottles filled with various colored threads. The book is pack-sewn over cords; the cords have been used to create the raised design on both covers. The book is bound with gampi/kozo paper.
