In an artist's statement, she writes, "It is important for me to bind a given book with great respect for the contents. My aim is to entice and excite the reader into the book, and to achieve harmony between design and function." Housed in an elegant gray cloth-covered box lined with printed paper.

        [Alphabet] A Hebrew Alphabet

      (London): Jo Bird, (2009) (London): Jo Bird, (2009). 48mo. (22)pp., accordion-fold. Signed by the artist. A one-of-a-kind artist's book by Jo Bird, who designed, printed, and bound the book. Folding out from right to left into a long panorama, the book is comprised of twenty-two linocuts depicting the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Each calligraphic letter is printed in black ink onto swaths of gold leaf, so that the gold illuminates the letterforms and gives texture and depth to the prints. Bound in deep yellow morocco with Aleph and Tav, the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, carbon-tooled to the covers with short, varied impressions. Bird was elected a Fellow of Designer Bookbinders in 2006, after earning the Mansfield Medal and first prize at the annual Designer Bookbinders competition in 2005. She finds inspiration for her art in text and intends her binding designs to become a natural extension of the book. In an artist's statement, she writes, "It is important for me to bind a given book with great respect for the contents. My aim is to entice and excite the reader into the book, and to achieve harmony between design and function." Housed in an elegant gray cloth-covered box lined with printed paper. Book measures 4 by 3 3/8 inches; 104x85mm. When unfolded, the panorama measures 68 3/4 inches in length.
