Title: The Captive, a poem by Forough Farrokhzad: hand-bound in a limited edition flag book by Don Widmer (2020), item no. 326

Description: The sculptural flag book is an artist book with image and text attached as strips of paper (flags) to the accordion spine. When opened, the image fragments combine into a panoramic spread. "The Captive" is a poem by Iranian poet Forough Farrokhzad (1934-67), a voice of protest and women's liberation. The image of the Khaju Bridge in Isfahan, Iran, is courtesy of @speakzeasy (Facebook/Wordpress). When the book is fully opened, the moving flags create a flapping sound. In addition, if the fore-edges of the book are brought together so that the front and back covers of the book lie face-down, the accordion spine will form an arch. If one peers beneath the arch and into the book, a lotus shape can be seen. A video of the book being manipulated can be seen at https://youtu.be/_HH-s-G6MgM. This book is produced in a limited edition of five and comes numbered and signed by the artist with a one-page colophon detailing the materials used to construct the book.
