It is so green outside it is difficult to leave the window - Shelagh Wakely

£40.00
WAKELY (Shelagh). It is so green outside it is difficult to leave the window.
First edition. 8vo., unpaginated [48pp.], numerous b&w plates perfect-bound into the original black card boards with titles in white, inside clear plastic wrapper. From a numbered edition of 750 of which this is 388. London, Coracle Press, 1980.

Plastic wrapper lightly scratched. An artist’s book collecting together a series of b&w photographs of an outdoor garden documenting the transformations taking place ‘from Spring 1974 to Spring 1979’ with an accompanying text by the artist. A rare example of Wakely’s writing and book work. Many themes of the artist’s approach to installation are foregrounded here with close attention to the dynamics between domestic objects and their environment.
