Your nimble tread, and Your untroubled verse
Gracia Haby & Louise Jennison
Your nimble tread
Your untroubled verse
A pair of artists’ books, unique state, featuring 8 individual collages on carte de visite with pencil and paint additions (by Gracia Haby) with 8 pencil drawings on Fabriano Artistico 640gsm traditional white hot-press paper with metallic paint trim (by Louise Jennison), and accompanying text pages
Housed in a fabric box with a printed collage, top and bottom (bound by Whites Law Bindery)
Both Your nimble tread (hats off to Cole Porter) and Your untroubled verse feature collages and drawings previously exhibited in the windows of Obus and Collected Works (for Blindside), and Port Jackson Press Print Gallery (LWOO), and in the cabinets of ACMI (for CaSFFA), in 2016. The troupe of Salvaged Relatives, recently boxed, were released into the wild from our stall at the 2017 NGV Melbourne Art Book Fair in the Great Hall.
