This Artist's Book consists of: a blind-embossed, letter-pressed snake inside a felt egg ["blood vessels" felted inside egg]
This book presents and considers Snake Detection theory, which proposes that humans specialize in vision and intelligence due largely to co-evolution with snakes. A viewer’s own visceral response (or lack thereof) to the bookform itself might inform whether one agrees with the theory or not. Coiled-up blind embossed & letterpress scroll, inside snake egg felted by Laurie Whitehill Chong. Approx. 5”x 6”x 5” when closed, or 22″ x 9″ when open.
