Seasonal Turns: Four Accordion Books
Urbana, IL: Inky Press Productions, 1998
Bound volume with offset lithographs and plastic case
Private collection

Nettles used many of the images from her series Turning 50 and from her stitched triptychs to create the four books that make up Seasonal Turns. Each accordion section represents a season, and the images and colors symbolize the various times of year as well as stages of life, from birth to old age.
