Berkeley: The Studio of Nothing Else, 2018. Ebner, Barry. Limited Edition. Accordion. One of 25 copies of a variable edition, quarto size,  pp. Fine. Item #CNBE02
"Fragments" is a variable edition of accordion books by Berkeley-based artist Barry Ebner, created with a series of monotypes collaged together, to form a seamless surface for the text to interact upon; because the imagery is created through the use of monotype overtop drypoint lines, each print in the book is unique, forming a variable edition.
The text is taken from a poem by Indigo Moor, Poet Laureate of Sacramento, California, printed first on separate sheets of monotypes, then sequenced into the accordion structure. The effect is a dreamlike reading of the poem, as the text can be partially obscured, existing in a space of dark and light.
