October - miniature round accordion in a box


A pairing of Susanna Roxman’s poem October with paintings by Alicia Bailey presents both the bleakness and chill of autumn landscape and the pervasive sense that autumn prophecies a period of decline along with the awareness that this decline into dormancy heralds a period of renewed vigor and growth in the spring.

Color laser printed from original watercolors on Mohawk Superfine text, this accordion book is
housed in a round box covered with pastepaper
and topped with glass and wire beads.
