Image Spaces, a collection of Vera Frenkel's poems and graphics, was published by Round-stone Press (Toronto) in 1972 and launched as part of Printmaking Plus/Métagravure, two National Gallery of Canada touring exhibitions of her prints and print structures. Frenkel is caught in the multiple refractions of her own work, in the mirrored vinyl inserts of her prints, in the self-revelation of her poems—intimate as love letters which the reader holds shyly.
"Nearly half a century ago, it heralded an interweaving of image and narrative that characterized my work from early videos to later multi-channel installations and websites." — Vera Frenkel, 2020
