Susanne Bürner, L'Isère and Le Travail, Manufactures d'histoire, Deux Ponts, Bresson, France, ed. 750.

Two accordions that take the format of the old fashioned folded postcard strips, and both explore the industrial and post-industrial landscape of the town of L'Isere that lies on the river of the same name, near Grenoble, France. The large factory in the town was a mine for processing the local stone. Interestingly, Isere was also the name of the French ship that delivered to the USA the 214 boxes inside of which was the Statue of Liberty.

This book project was sponsored by local organizations and historical groups interested in documenting the history of this previously important industrial area.

Both accordions: 12 double-sided pages, individual pages 3" (h) x 4" (w), and when fully open 4ft.
