  • Title from container
  • Edition of 50 signed copies
  • "Dedicated to my dear friend, Toni [Nelson]"--Colophon
  • "Chrysalis was envisioned and produced by Julie Chen, and letterpress printed from photopolymer plates. The terra cotta colored paper is from Cave Paper in Minneapolis and the black denim paper is from La Papeterie Saint-Armand in Montréal. The shape of the outer structure is a version of an oloid, a geometric shape discovered by sculptor and mathematician Paul Schatz in 1929. An oloid is defined by the space created by two linked circles that intersect on perpendicular planes. It is the relationship of the circles that creates the shape. Special thanks to Faith Hale, Kendyll Dittmann and Keri Schroeder for their assistance in the studio"--Colophon
  • Work consists of a sculptural book object in the shape of a faceted oloid covered with iridescent gold and lavender silk and held closed with magnets. The faceted planes of the book object can be opened by the reader to reveal contents on the inner surface, lined with veined terracotta paper. The semi-circular book stored within has matching covers of gold and lavender silk, and when open, circular pages containing additional text. When fully opened, the book object lies in a flat plane (30 x 46 x 8 cm). The dark blue book, held in place with magnets, can be removed and read. The book object is housed in a box covered in dark brown silk, one side of which contains a pane of clear plastic which can be opened like a door. Below the door is a slot in which the reader can slide a text panel in and out by pulling on a brown silk loop. The colophon is printed on a paper sheet and affixed to the inside of the box lid
