Artists' Statement: Making books, prints, and writings keep one in concordance with one's personal history.
We are sharing some of our collaborative history in A Turn for the Magpie. The chart of our two island origins, the in-flight pose of the book's structure, and the layout of the text and prints that require you to read the bookwork at different angles illustrate this journey unfolding.
