- "Muybridge Sequence was inspired by the work of the 19th-century photographer Eadweard Muybridge, who devised a system for photographing, on glass-plate negatives, the locomotion of humans and many other animals. This was a precursor to motion pictures. For this book, I was exploring the wide variety of image textures that could be achieved by means of etching, using a range of acid-resistant materials to make the printing plates. The book consists of three joined printed sheets, plus printed covers. Each letter of the title page is enclosed in a compartment, to echo the sequences in Muybridge's work. Printed on the back cover is text that I wrote as a commentary on the imagery of the book's moving horse." -- Artist's statement from NPL Artist's file.
- "... shifting its weight through the succession of shadows and light... in acquiescence to the surrounding wind, to the sound of its body moving through time... marching, on a mere membrane of glass, into uncertainty..." -- back cover.
