ANC007: Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartes by Spencer Dew

Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres weaves worlds and eras to speak a universal language—a language lamenting the complexities of grieving. In this immersive narrative, Spencer Dew adopts Henry Adams's classic meditation on gothic architecture as a contextual framework to explore  one woman’s stages of mourning as she returns to a home left long ago to watch an already distant mother slip away. 

Featuring a DIY scale model of the cathedral at Chartres and transparent overlays, we might be so bold as to suggest that the book is a rather handsomely prepared object.

44 pages, handmade and numbered; 15-piece Chartres kit
