Diane Fine and Katherine Kuehn developed the artist book Detours over several years and many sessions of list-writing and editing. Together they compiled about one hundred phrases beginning with the words, “If only.” They read these back and forth to each other until they had honed the list, then recorded the chosen texts by sewing them onto found remnants of clothing. These samplers were scanned and printed. Fine and Kuehn wrote lead-in phrases that were printed letterpress for each image. Detours is hand-bound by Kuehn using an accordion structure.
