Project Description

Pas De Deux

Pas de Deux is a collection of twenty collaborative artists’ books made by Fiona Dempster and Susan Bowers over a three year period. This beautiful and creative journey began with the idea of making a book together, and grew into a unique collection. On each of the ten occasions we collaborated, we created two books, one each, within a given time-frame and within certain agreed parameters. With each pair of books we tried to collaborate in a different way. The collection formed the heart of a highly acclaimed exhibition at Noosa Regional Gallery in 2015 and the full collection was recently purchased by a private collector in Melbourne.

These are my ten books. An article about all 20 books appeared in the American Journal Bound and Lettered Vol 13.1 in January 2016.
