Common Threads, 2010top
Common Threads, a series of hand-embroidered canvas books, copy the form and design of dime store “composition” books.
The books themselves, self consciously hand made objects, are a record of coincidental occurrences generally gleaned from reading or mundane events.
The use of embroidery thread allows for the production of the text and image with the same mark and material, to make the text, image and substance of the book inseparable. Each book measures 7x9x1."
String Theory is a unique book in the Common Threads series, it Hawkinsly goes where no seamstress bookmaker has gone before and currently exists in the collection of the Stanford University Art Library.
