    Carson and Miller’s artists’ book, 'The Exquisite Fold', utilises the book as a site for play and storytelling. Both acts are interpretative; they are ways through which both child and adult attempt to understand the world that surrounds them. In 'Your Turn' the process of making 'The Exquisite Fold' is explored in terms of both its content and its very particular physical construction. Through this examination the ideas that underpin the book are drawn out; the potential for the book to be played with (particularly as a place to play with narrative) and, in turn, the impulse to uncover meaning through narrative and play.
