The paper is Kitakata and the cover is Reg Lissel’s handmade paper.  The book was sewn and bound at my studio on Vancouver Island.” Published 2009.

Title: a handful of odes. Limited edition Artist’s Book of 15 copies. (SOLD OUT)

 

 

 

 

 

From the colophon: “This book collects about 30 drawings made during an artist residency in Sweden in June, 2006. The original images were ink on paper, with watercolour staining. The title of each drawing – sometimes enigmatic, sometimes contemplative – is rendered by hand below… Each copy of the book is unique. The sheets were folded in quires, sewn on tapes, and put in a painted dust jacket and slipcase. The letterpress for the title page and colophon was done in hand-set Gill Sans, printed on the Heavenly Monkey handpress.” Published 2006.
