A unique artist's book, composed of an accordion fold of five colored hummingbirds in various stages of flight or feeding at differing orientations. With the artist's blindstamped seal inside the rear board, with the legend "Handmade Book of Anne-Claude Cotty, and signed "Cotty '98." A relatively straight-forward but labor intensive work by the accomplished Swiss-born, long-time Maine resident photographer / book artist / sculptor whose works often take on an admirable degree of mechanical and intellectual complexity.
