Scott McCarney, Far Horizons, Rochester: Visual Studies Workshop Press, 1998, ed. 500

In a statement inside the cover flap MaCarney explains that "...Far Horizons is the name of a traditional American quilt square, which this books adopts for its basic pattern." Stitching together panoramic landscapes from various places around the country, McCarney pays homage to these sites that provide him with moments of contemplation as well as a sense of awe at these huge American landscapes.

This accordion includes two different directional turns which when laid out flat creates a solid sheet, precisely what one calls this publication that utilizes essentially two reading directions in one publication — I'm not sure that at the moment!

12 pages, 7" x 7" (H), extended 3' 8."
