e bond for FreeSpirit Fabrics
e bond, under the studio name of roughdrAftbooks, has long captivated audiences in the art world – provoking, creative ways to think about language and typography.
It only makes sense then, coming from a legacy of artists and quilters, that e is now showcasing her art through the medium of fabric with FreeSpirit.
Her latest collection, RAVEL (15 SKUs, November), is inspired by e’s visual exploration of shapes. Intriguing designs and color palettes come together and fall apart in this collection that plays with imbued symbols and their meanings.
“For this collection, I focused on the modern Roman alphabet (aka the 26 letterforms from A—Z) as the primary shapes. RAVEL became a collection of prints about these shapes coming together and falling apart.”
Central to her exploration were two questions: a.) How can I break letters apart into new, interesting forms, and b.) Is it possible to obscure these already imbued symbols so much that they ‘lose’ their meaning?
“A contronym is a word having two meanings that contradict one another, so finding the word ‘ravel’ was perfect for bringing all these ideas together in a collection form. Ravel means both to tangle and to untangle, which is a wonderful way to think about these visual shapes in space.”
e bond’s creative exploration of the contronym ‘ravel’ is beautifully represented in her collection of 15 designs. Her keen sense of art as language is translated into patterns of bold, graphic shapes, full of color and meaning.
