This book derives from my eternal interest in geometry, paper and light. Interluceo means to shine or gleam between; to be transparent; to let light through gaps. The white handmade papers feature seven intricate geometric watermarks in a cotton/abaca paper blend, relating to the numbers one through seven and their corresponding shapes (point, line, triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, septagon).
Seven papercut illustrations by Béatrice Coron grace seven sheets of translucent handmade abaca paper in the hues of the rainbow, and the illustrations portray the mysteries of life: a baby in the womb, a couple, a child, the child gaining strength and running to embrace life, the building of a home (the pentagonal shape), exploring the world and finally spiritual contemplation. Light and color are the magicians that make watermarks, shadows and shapes appear and disappear as you turn the pages.
