Mrs Merivale
Flag book  2013

MrsMerivale4

Mrs Merivale combines coloured papers with random fragments from a discarded novel, Patrick White’s A Fringe of Leaves. The text is not intended to be taken literally: the interleaved and fluttering pages of the flag book structure represent conversation and interaction between Mrs Merivale and Miss Scrimshaw, two characters from the novel.

Mrs Merivale was shortlisted for the Manly Library Artist’s Book Award 2013.
