Thirty Cent Stitches by Gretchen Korsmo
Thirty Cent Stitches is the debut visual art publication of artist Gretchen Korsmo. The sixteen works collected in its pages represent a moment in time–an exercise in iterative, intuitive artmaking. Made primarily from reused paper and scrap thread, the work shares the desire for art to be part of the everyday; easily accessible and embedded into routine life.
The first chapbook to be published by Nonmachinable, Thirty Cent Stitches is printed in full color on deluxe 40 lb matte paper, and bound with a paper obi. Half-size, 16 pages, hand-numbered edition of 70.
