Cakestand / Lise Melhorn-Boe

Melhorn-Boe, Lise. Cakestand. 2004.12 pages. (13 x 13 x 4″). Archives and Special Collections, University of Calgary.

From the artist’s website: This is a funny story about how we lose control of our bodies, told to Marilyn Zimmerman by her grandmother. The book is quilted (the pages pieced in the Cakestand pattern) and opens into a large square, to be read around a table. Also included are a quilted teapot and teacups. The text is handwritten.
