artists' books collection
the ragmud collection, by aminah brenda Lynn robinson
"First published in conjuction with the exhibition "Aminah Robinson: Voices that Taught Me How to Sing" at the Toledo Museum of Art, November 18, 2010-February 27, 2011."
Six booklets housed in a folding case with die-cut and embossing, string closure; mini-books, multiple fold-outs and accordion folds. Using rich visual language and poetic text, Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson tells stories full of humor and universal truths about her family, her community, African American history, and her own life experiences. This book, with its lively mix of formats and intricate design, evokes the experience of paging through Robinson's ten one-of-a-kind artist's books, The Ragmud Collection, now in the Toledo Museum of Art's collection.
