Images description: These four artists books have a rough birch bark cover. The book is tied closed with hessian string which has beads attached to the end of it. The inside cover of the book is lined with paper from an Ordinance Survey map. When opened the inside map cover is 99% obscured. When opened up there is one double page spread which unfolds from the centre of the book. The centre page is folded using a Turkish map fold. The centre page is made from unbleached cotton which is backed onto a random piece of Ordinance Survey map. There is a raised surface on the unbleached cotton which is made from strands of twisted felting wool. The wool creates the pattern of a maze which you can run your fingers over to trace the pattern.
