Bea Nettles, 14 Mysteries, Urbana, Illinois, 2012. [open edition]

This is just a gem of an artists' book, and integral to the work is its accordion format. Underneath the 14 keys and for the whole length of the work is the following text, "These keys were found in a cluster when we moved here in 1984. Their purposes have long been forgotten. After twenty-two years they hang on a hook in the basement. One never knows when their role in our house will be revealed." 


14 pages at 3.5" x 1.5" and opened 1' 9"
