Not a Straight Line
Emily Martin
Naughty Dog Press; Iowa City, IO, USA
Edition: #12/20
Inscription: Signed by the artist
Notes: Ten small books (5 x 5cm) sewn together and housed in a beige buckram drop-back box held closed with an elastic band. They unfold to make a crooked street. This book was made for the Al-Mutanabbi Street Artists' Book project. The project aims to "re-assemble" some of the "inventory" of the reading material that was lost in the car bombing of al-Mutanabbi Street, the heart of the historic literary district of Baghdad. To read the book viewers must find their way along the linked books that turn this way and that way much as a meandering street would.
