I have been collecting Sol LeWitt books for some time now – initially these books were used as material for a series of animations â€“ but slowly I started buying them just to complete a collection. The search for the white spine.
Sol’s books are predominately white and when going through the shelves of book dealers I always pull out the white books with hope… repetition and repeat is a constant – I often acquire the same book twice or even three times… they all look the same.
In 2005 I produced a book called Cover Version – it featured all the covers of my Sol LeWitt books – a kind of what’s in my library compendium.
For this new piece I have fabricated an abstract version of Cover Version.
