Fragments of the Book Leaf by Helen Malone. 2011. The text of Arthur Rimbaud's Illuminations No 12: Sentences and Fragments of the Book Leaf has been fragmented to negate the need for order on the printed page, thus enhancing the intention of evoking images through immediate personal associations, and suggests the intangible quality and random connections of a dream. Adapted Secret Belgian Binding with adhesive lettering on perspex fragments. Perspex Book Sculpture. 20 cm x 12 cm x 2 cm.
