Summary
  • "A book of cartographical unfoldings, tessellated map fragments, and beasts of the imagination. Pages open to reflected images of historical map details from the Dutch Age of Discovery. Turn the book over, and the patterns become more complex, abstracting the repetition and reflection many journeys entail. Text includes wayfarer invocations and wayfinding instructions, with mapmaking histories relating to a time when the unknown could be imbued with magical qualities"--From Vamp & Tramp website (viewed September 23, 2015)
  • "In making books, Casey approaches a subject from many directions and levels of inquiry. Her pages open to a landscape of options and layers of detail for the reader to navigate. Through analytical probing and outlandish premises, she creates a world of language and imagery, inviting the reader to travel into her books along varied routes that render new destinations with each reading"--Artist's statement from Set in Motion Press website (viewed September 23, 2015)
