New edition of "So..." published by Stenen Press

Readers, no matter their age or language, will delight in this wordless picture book that follows the journey of a simple circle traveling through colorful landscapes. Adventures await in this vibrant world filled with curious sewing notions and colorful batik fabric. Lush palettes and imaginative backdrops usher us through portals, over hills, and behind curtains: So… is a magically unfamiliar world made of familiar things. Intricately designed by NYC-based artist Heather Cox, this work is at once parable and art-piece, sure to give new voice to your everyday household objects. So… is a story about who we meet, what we acquire, what we discard, and how we are quietly transformed along the way.

Artist and educator Alessandra Expósito and Heather Cox discuss the making of "So..." (4 min 39 sec)


"So… is an artist’s book by Heather Cox that elegantly animates familiar tools of sewing—thread, scissors, straight pins, bobbins, buttons, fringe, batik—into a visual theater that changes as the reader turns each page. So… is a soundless book which the reader can see, hear, and enjoy."


—Sabra Moore, artist and author of Openings: A Memoir from the Women's Art Movement, New York City 1970-1992



"Works of art in book form have tremendous power to transport their readers to new realms. So, along comes this exuberant work of art by Heather Cox that did just this for me, with exquisite style. So…speaks volumes in only a few pages, with no words at all. It follows the quirky and mysterious trail of a circle who, after many ups and downs and adventuring with someone new, becomes… someone new. The luxurious textile backgrounds tell stories of their own, offering more to discover and delight in at each re-reading. So… is a delightful gift. It is the kind of book that would easily inspire discussion and introspection for all ages. And it left me, just like the circle protagonist, changed. So… what’s better than that?"


—Karen Viola, book artist, KV Artworks
