Lectio Divina explores the practice of sacred reading by way of repetition, meditation, and contemplation. This series of three accordion books is enclosed in a four-flap portfolio case. Each book is letterpress-printed with handset metal types and washed with sumi ink. The books, collaged strips, embroidered thread, and case are from unbleached abaca paper made by the artist. This book can be ‘read’ sequentially or can be displayed as three opened panels.
