Untitled 2. With the poem 'Lullaby' by Rosie Miles. Book by Sara Elgerot / Rare Autumn, 2011. Hand-constructed. 6x2,5cm. Limited edition of 1 (plus 1 artist's proof).
This is the second book that is part of Rosie Miles 'Poetry and Illustration Project', and also takes its starting point from her poem 'Lullaby'.
'Untitled 2' is an extension of (and to be displayed with) the book Untitled 1.
As 'Untitled 1', 'Untitled 2' can be displayed as a book and opened and read as one and also has a sculptural quality to it where it can be viewed or displayed as such.
It also share the same protectiveness and utilitarian feel in the use of materials and execution.
In 'Untitled 2' the protection of the poem has taken one step further however, with the words literally "bolted in".
