Helen Douglas, Frost Bites, Weproductions, Deuchar Mill, Scotland, 2017

A really beautiful accordion by Douglas, a longtime book artist who has used this format in many of her works, indeed a recent exhibition at Edinburgh's Fruitmarket Gallery in 2019, consisted solely of concertina books. This delicate work in which frost is cast as the harbinger of winter, has been printed on a very thin paper which adds to its ephemeral feel, and it enhances the contrast between the flowing of the water in the background (sky) and the solidity of the vegetation on the bank (earth).

For further information about this distinguished Scottish book artist start here with her publishing imprint! 

14 pages, single-sided, individual pages 9.5" (h) x 3" (w), when fully opened 3ft 6".
