  1. Book Artist of the Month: Jody Alexander

    August 5, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


    If She Thought It Would Help, Zelda Would Use Her Antediluvian Curse Cache to Attain Her Revenge is the title for a ‘boxed book’ project that Jody Alexander created in 2004. The wooden box is packed with books on the left and found objects in compartments on the right. The exposed spines of the books display a variety of sewing structures including packed sewing over split thongs, Coptic, longstitch, ticketed, French stitch and sewing over cords. 

    Jody expresses that the title says enough for the viewer to fill in the rest in regards to the concept of the piece. So please, make your own conclusions.
