Text Block: 40 sections laser cut mould-made Johannot paper, each section 4 folios, colored and laser engraved fore edges, laser engraved wooden covers, linen thread, Coptic binding with endbands 3.5 x 3.5 x 4.5". Signed and numbered by the artist. 

In the Metamorphoses series, I am focusing on Islamic art and design. I want to reveal how patterns develop and morph in a book that makes the viewer experience their beauty, elegance, harmony, intricacy, and complexity.
