The publication documents the bookmaking project ‘The Story of the Colourful Ribbons’ which consisted of a series of 24 conceptual book objects made from wood, cardboard and ribbons, created from 1987 to 1994. Instead of text various ribbons are threaded through the book in different rhytmic patterns and structures, thus spinning a kind of story.
