Bea Nettles: 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.
