"Remorseless Sweet" is an artist book inspired by a grave outside my studio inscribed with the quote, "This was a marriage" from Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God. The book is a double accordion with vellum cut outs of figure drawings and a cyanotype print of pressed flowers. The pressed flowers are enclosed in vellum pockets inside the accordion.
