Atlas Gallery Books


Mid Atlas – early 2020

Arriving into Marrakash as the sun sets over the Atlantic in the west and the land turns from sand to rust to indigo ink. The mountains are steady in the background, waiting , a barrier to travers, a view to ponder, a guard on the horizon.

The mountains have provided irrigation for a thousand years to the secret gardens of the city. Cool water, green courtyards, fruiting trees. Paradise contained in rose coloured cubes – this simple building structure stacked to form everything from modest villages to grand estates. Walls protecting crops and privacy.

This series of folded gallery books, crown bindings, coptic journal, map folds and structures inspired by Van Viliet/Steiner from their book Woven and Interlocking Structures.
