Jackie Morris typed more than a hundred short texts on to small squares of gold leaf, then photographed them.
These pieces are arranged in a sequence which culminates in a section made up of texts typed directly on to leaves, bark and feathers. Jackie Morris started to write the pieces shortly after her father died when, for the first time ever, she found herself unable to paint. These objects emerged to fill the space her paintings had left behind. This book is full of the light and wind that fills the Pembrokeshire coast where it was crafted, each page anchored to the landscape by the mechanical rhythm of Jackie’s antique typewriters. The result is a collection of artworks to be both looked at and read.
