Artist Statement:

These pages map together fragments of the landscape of an image originally published in Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, a well-known book, by Aldus Manutius in 1499. Like reading a street directory, the reader can connect other, larger ongoing features across this image, navigating to the point where all the pieces finally fall into place, perhaps, resulting in an epiphany, of how this landscape works. This is a handmade, hardcover, section-sewn, limited-edition book. 19cms wide x 29cms high, closed.
