Bernard Lassus, Les Pins, Coracle Press, London, 1983

An 11 page accordion whose images are made from the bark of the pines in the Forte de la Courbre, on the French Atlantic coast. Presented as one long strip it serves as a mini cross-section of this wood and reflects Lassus' long involvement with tree bark as a new kind of material. Edition 750, 2.75" (h) x 66" (l)
