Sonority of Words, Special edition

Katie Bond Pretti
Standard Form
Artists' Books
18.5 × 18 cm

Sonority of Words, consists of three chapters designed to develop a narrative as the drawings progress from beginning to end. Though not containing any literal message, the lines and shapes which form each drawing direct the viewer through a sequence of events. Similar to way in which the letter-symbol elements of sound poetry necessitate that the viewer forms their own associations, this story depends upon handmade marks to express dynamics and intonation. The format of the book echoes the linear theme featuring fold-outs to accommodate larger and continuous images, while its scale maintains intimacy. 32 pages with fold-outs, Black and white, Perfect bound. 300 Standard Edition, 15 Special Edition (Hand-coloured.)
