How Stories are Born by Mia Leijonsted, A concertina book with aquarelle paper, goat skin, cotton thread, beads, stones, ink. 10 pages. 5.5 x 11.4 x 2.75 inches. 2011. Unique. This book refers to the origin of stories. Here the structure of the book aims to symbolically convey the oral tradition of passing on stories, long before the book as a structure came about. The illegibility of the “mother” story births into being many other smaller stories, rich & intricate in detail.
