Pleated Tidings

By Dirk Hagner
San Juan Capistrano, California: Inkswine Press, [2018]. Edition of 15.

13.75 x 5.125" closed, extends to 13.75 x 44". Vertical accordion. Woodcut in 3 colors. Letterpress text on 250 gms rag paper. Bound in paper-covered boards with twine wrap closure. Signed and numbered by the artist.

Dirk Hagner: "This a vertical accordion book … features a quote from William Butler Yeats: 'I have spread my dreams under your feet; tread softly for you tread on my dreams.'

The back of this piece folds into a horizontal triangle that acts like a stand-off when the book is pinned through aligned eyelet holes to a wall - its intended way of display."
