Reason Belief Truth - 12 drawings with rotating elements continues the philosophical investigations I began with the artist book edition Reason Belief Truth.

Six sets of original drawings illustrate some of the conditions or conflicts that arise when searching for the truth

Each drawing contains a rotating element with two parts, a disc and a center triangle or pinwheel with the laser cut words Reason Belief Truth. The disc and center pieces can be rotated independently to create additional relationships between the words and the images.

Reason Belief Truth - 12 drawings with rotating elements is a unique book and was designed, illustrated, and bound by Thomas Parker Williams.
