A Tactile Notion
A tri-fold booklet lies on a layered white linen surface. The booklet says "A Tactile Notion / Kim McCollum & Brianna Tosswill / Vol. 1" on the front. The second page has a window with a red and light brown weaving sample which invites touch. The third page has a linocut print of a woman looking intently "reading" the weave of the blaket on her lap. Everything is in tones of brown, pink, red, and beige.
A caucasian hand holds a small print in front of a window (a potted plant is hidden behind it). The print has a square image at the top with a short-haired woman sitting up in bed and looking intently at the weave of the blanket across her lap. She is wearing striped pyjamas and light is streaming in the window behind her. Below the image, on the same pice of paper is a bit of text that says "A weaving is a story. It has a beginning and an end. It can be deciphered line by line."
A photo of Kim McCollum and Brianna Tosswill in a weaving studio with A Tactile Notion on the table in front of them. They are both tallish, white, brunette women (no relation). They are both wearing fabric masks because this photo was taken in 2020.

A collaboration between artist/weaver Kim McCollum and bookartist/printmaker Brianna Tosswill. 

Kim occasionally considers weaving as text/storytelling/communication/knowledge storing... and Brianna sees everything as a book. There is a sweet spot in our creative venn diagram and this project fits perfectly within it.

Volume No. 1

The first iteration of ATN contains a weaving sample titled "poppies" in red cotton and light brown linen. The linocut print included is a meditation on reading and codification outside of conventional language. It is called "reader - weaver". To be honest, I wanted to call it "reader/weaver" but I didn't have the diagonal slash in the lead typeface I was using! The text below the linocut is from Kim's notes on the subject: 

A weaving is a story.

It has a beginning and an end.

It can be deciphered line by line.

 

Volume No. 2

The second iteration of ATN contains a doubleweave sample in lemon yellow, gray, and white. The lincout print (titled "Cheers from 2m (6 feet) away") is a double sided image with two figures at a picnic. In the tradition of Volume 1, a bookmark is included with the letterpressed concept:

A weaving is a conversation.

It must be considered from both sides.

 

Volume No. 3

The third iteration of ATN contains a section of rag-weaving in soft blues. The linocut print is a set of four Ex Libris inserts featuring a weaver at her loom. A bookmark is included with the letterpressed concept:

A weaving has a lineage.

It is informed by the structures that precede it.

 

Volume No. 4 

This, the fourth and final iteration of ATN  contains a gorgeous red, cream, black, and blue plaid sample. The linocut is a mountain range/cloudscape printed from a single carving with rotational symmetry. The included book mark states:

A weaving holds comfort:

a message of warmth 

from weaver to wearer.
