This diminutive artist’s book was specially commissioned by Ivorypress as part of an ongoing series. ‘Verso’ is a previously unpublished work by British sculptor and installation artist Cornelia Parker. Taking button samplers as her starting point, Parker uncovers the patterns left by the buttons and holes on the reverse side of these mundane pieces, using string and thread to create drawings and paths while attempting to reveal the motivations they might hide, or even what they could say about those who made them. A short but evocative text by Colm Tóibín offers some perspective on the work.
