Aquifer - New Book for 2009

As an exercise in bringing more spontaneity into my studio, my first book of the new year, Aquifer, is now complete. This unique accordion book is made from lithographs hand-painted with watercolor, gouache, acrylic, and carborundum. Text tip-ins are ink jet printed on handmade Japanese Gampi made by the artist in the nagashizuki method. More handmade paper, an abaca blend with subtle metallic pigment, has been used for the cover.
