Little House / Lise Melhorn-Boe

Melhorn-Boe, Lise. Little House: Volumes One and Two. 2004. 6 pages. (9 x 9 x 1″). Archives and Special Collections, University of Calgary.

From the artist’s website: Two similar books (same format, but different text) with anonymous women’s stories about being sexually abused as girls, in their own homes. Each page is a quilt square, pieced with the “Little House” traditional quilt pattern. The squares are stiffened and each book opens up to form a three-dimensional house.
