"Record" is a facsimile of June Leaf's sketchbook from the winters of 1974 and 1975, spent in Mabou Coal Mines, Nova Scotia, where she has lived since 1969 with her husband, Robert Frank. Leaf's sketches are exploratory: she refines a motif as simple as, say, a knot, over days and weeks, until it becomes one detail in a more complex picture. "Record" candidly expresses the frustrations of the creative process.
