Description: Photographs of the 2009-2010 artist's book competition honorable mention "Grilled Cheese" created by Carlynn Field. The book is a sculptural representation of a grilled cheese sandwich made of yellow fabric, printed fabric, hand-dyed silk, and batting. When opened, the "cheese" is revealed to be a long accordion-folded strip of cloth, each panel with an embroidered representation of the steps to make a grilled cheese sandwich. The volume is presented on a blue heavy plastic circular plate. The first image is of the grilled cheese sitting on a blue paper plate. Image 2, the grilled cheese is laying on a blue plate, one of the "slices" sticking out has a flower-like print. Image 3, the cloth grilled cheese pages are opened up to the yellow inside, the page on the left has a white flower pattern with orange dots around it. Stitched onto the page are the words "2 min" the number 5, and a little pan stitched under it. The page on the right is pure yellow with the word Flip, the number 6 and a grilled cheese stitched onto it. Image 4, the open grilled cheese from a different angle. Artist's statement: "A step-by-step 'How to' for the ultimate comfort food - grilled cheese sandwich. Also, it is one of the first foods a child learns to make on the stove."
