First there was Ellen Korth’s ‘Fabric of Time’. A big sensuous experience. Photo’s of old underware and lingerie from famous collections printed on huge ultra thin semi transparant paper. Stitched together Japanese style, rolled up and put in a large carton box with debossed type. 

The book concept however restricted the selection of photo’s dramatically. And although I think we were all proud of the result. Still there were a lot of images and stories unused. 

That’s why Ellen decided that a second publication was warranted. As we didn’t want to compete with The Fabric of Time it needed to be simpeler. A catalogue of sorts. Classical in a way and room for quite a few essays. So here it is: The Rustle of Touch. Pretty classical indeed with a few extra’s. The cover is only printed with lacquer. Two original hand made prints are bound in the front. And the carton slipcase is all over covered with crumpled thin paper to add a sense of textile texture. Courtesy of binder Wytze Fopma.

Rustle of Touch', here's its predecessor 'The Fabric of Time'. A big sensuous tactile "book". Actually it's not really a book. It's a stack of big sheets of very very thin Japanese paper, stitched together Japanese style, rolled up, bound together with a very long strand of threat (that we didn't cut off from the binding) and put into a long carton box for protection. The sense of sensuality, longing and history emanating from the fragile transparant underwear and lingerie is emphasized by embossed text lines on the bottom of every sheet, which together make a love poem.
