Kumi Korf: "This is the second book in which I used a structure I invented. Accordion folds hold each page, attached with dental floss, three holes on the page, with stainless steel wire on the backside of each fold as reinforcement. The accordion folds are not equally dimensioned. There is 1/2" difference, allowing a half-inch of the page edges to show when the book is closed. Different colors line up like stripes or folds of clothing similar to the formal attire of court ladies in Japan thousands of years ago. The pages are printed on both sides by intaglio techniques. "We look up at clouds all the time. They are, visually, so much a part of our daily life. One artist that comes to mind is Constable. His studies of clouds are almost abstract paintings. Clouds are shapely but abstract.
