This limited-edition artist’s book is visually and conceptually linked to Christine Dixie’s installation, The Binding, which is part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, Washington, D.C. Published by Fourthwall Books in Johannesburg.

Working collaboratively with bookbinder Hélene van Aswegen, Dixie brought the deluxe edition into being as a project in its own right. The different surfaces of the book – leather, mohair, embossment, paper, string – were carefully considered and constitute a conceptual point of departure for the book.
