The bookbinder’s world: Glasshouse

CHF 310,00

Glasshouses are small corners of mystery. There is always an element of surprise, as they don’t give their full content away from the outside, despite all that parcelled, thin glass. You can’t always make out whether someone is within either or what they’re up to. (cont’d below)

“The glasshouse

Part of the “The bookbinder’s world” tanzaku series.

(cont’d from above) Is there a gardener inside, amidst the greenery? Or is it a single visitor? What is he or she really up to?

The Old Botanical Garden glasshouse and the bench in front were in fact empty on the day I visited, but I decided to add two small characters, not so clearly defined, one outside, another inside, each to their own world… As if a story is about to begin.
