Brooklyn Bridge

Subtitled, A Love Song, the text of this book starts with a poem celebrating the material and symbolic richness of the great Brooklyn Bridge. Following the poem are five double-page spread paintings of the bridge seen from different angles and times of day that are painted on sanded aluminum pages attached to paper hinges. Nine abstract studies that explore the essence of bridges alternate between the paintings. The tactile effect on the reader is one of great weight and delicacy. The quarter leather binding is made of goatskin from Nigeria with aluminum sides, and the book is housed in an aluminum box.
