With Christiane Wustinger and Martin Kubaczek
26″ x 9″ x 3″ and 18″ x 8.5″ x 2″
First in a series of paper, gobelin weaving and poetry collaborative artist books, published in 1994. The gobelin-leporello is designed and executed by Christiane Wustinger, Austria; the haiku in German is by Martin Kubaczek, Japan; watermarked cotton and iris papers, book and box construction are by Robbin Ami Silverberg, USA.
These books are dialogues between 3 different media, each with its unique perspective on text.
The haiku reads:
Du strickst in Wolle
Ich in wörten; dein Handschuh
Gegen mein Gedicht.
You knit (together) in wool
I in words; your gloves.
Against my poetry.
