“Quaternity” – Four Elements, 2015

“Quaternity”, a collaboration between poet Janet Upcher and artist Jennifer Marshall, is a five section hand-sewn book of hand-written poems and limited edition prints, bound in half leather and book cloth. Relief prints separate each section. Endpapers are hand-printed linocuts.

Each of the four elements, Fire, Air, Earth, Water, forms one of the four sections in “Quaternity“. Each section contains four poems, two linocuts and an etching. The heart of the book, the fifth section, is made up of a woodblock, a linocut and a hand-coloured etching of a composite landscape. A hand-coloured central double-spread etching brings all four elements together.

All sixteen poems were written for the book and are published for the first time in “Quarternity”. The prints were made in response to the elements and not as illustrations of the poetry.

75 pages, 26.5 x 22.0 x 2.0 cm.
Title: “Quaternity“ printed on spine in upper case Times Roman and Q on front cover, bottom right, blocked in copper foil.
Bound by SBLibris, Bendigo, Victoria.
