This artist's book is the final part of a photographic work, of which the first three parts were installations. The book consists of 12 fold-out, black-and-white photographs with text by Marian Penner Bancroft. Bancroft posits a concern with the landscape as an individual creates it through her/his own history and imagination. The bookwork’s form reflects the impulse to interrupt a smooth narrative reading. Winner of the International Artist's Books Contest of Canada, 1986.
