About This Item

Portland, OR: Author, 2012. Original work. 4 x 5.25 inches. Unique artist's book, titled, signed, and dated on the spine. Fine condition.

Artist Gabriel Liston, whose paintings typically depict an unsentimental view of the world of children's experience, creates these one-of-a-kind "book tiles" by sewing shut copies of cheaply made commercial children's books (all from the same series), sealing them with acrylic medium, and painting images in a blue reminiscent of Delft tiles. Liston maintains the book tiles' tenuous connection with their origin by typically taking the title from a caption in the book, and by sanding away tiny areas to allow the original cover coloration to show through.

About Passages Bookshop

Passages Bookshop stocks fine, rare, and unusual books and graphic art, with a concentration on modern and contemporary literature and art (particularly poetry and the avant-garde), artist's books, fine printing, and the book arts. The successor to New York City's Bridge Bookshop (late 1980s), Passages opened in Albuquerque in 1994 and relocated to Portland, Oregon, in 1997. In November of 2015 we moved to a new retail shop and gallery centrally located in Portland's east side, two blocks north of the convention center, where we are typically open Thursday through Saturday from 12:00 to 6:00 pm, as well as by appointment or chance.
