Fragments d’une Correspondance Litteraire
by Sharon Kivland (2001)
“Fragments d’une Correspondance Litteraire is an exquisite edition that is available in two versions that display a sensuous use of materials: as a bound volume of texts covered in straight grain leather and as a loose print folio covered in purple book cloth. Fragments d’une Correspondance Litteraire utilises fragments from the letters of Denis Diderot, French philosopher and chief editor of the ‘l’Encyclopedie’, one of the principal literary monuments of the Age of Enlightenment, to his lover Sophie Volland. In this work, that continues her preoccupation with the correspondence of Diderot and Volland, Sharon Kivland has created a work that exists both as a social document and as a record of an extraordinary love affair.
Fragments d’une Correspondence Litteraire is printed letterpress, designed and produced at Book Works Studio.”

“Beautiful bracelet made of high quality clear resin.
Design for this bracelet was inspired by vintage erotic photography.
I’ve used copy of old nude female photos for realization my idea.”

“Handmade beads made from natural, unbleached paper. Each bead is a line printed with the words of a little tale of a young boy yearning for the attention of a certain little girl. I wrote the story, printed and rolled each bead.”
