The artist wrote the text for this unique book. The text is lettered in gouache and painted with brush, compass, and straight-edge on the artist's past paper and Katie MacGregor's handmade papers. The term "sacred cut," was first used by Tons Brunes, a Danish engineer, to describe proportions found in Roman architecture and gardens and refers to a method of dividing a square to achieve a harmonic division of proportions. The story traces the first appearance of geometry and ponders its use and beauty throughout the book with paintings of stones interwoven with geometrical constructs. The book was bound in dark red vellum by Joelle Leavitt Webber of Mermaid Bindery.
