Two weeks ago I made this little book for Tara.
In Korea I swapped some stuff with the other book artists. Tara picked my little “Textile Story” but I only had the very same – so she had to wait for a while! I usually don´t make books in editions; because of the character of my works it’s not so obvious to do so. That’s a quite different matter if you’re a printer. Anyway, I discussed the matter with Tara and we agreed I should give it a try, so here it is: my first book “in edition”!
It means I keep the master book/ matrix to measure from and look at, and then I’ll make up till a maximum of 12 numbered and signed copies. Because of their handmade character they inevitably will come out slightly different – but I have decided to regard it not a problem but my hallmark.
This first one is ready and shipped off to Tara – in her new house in Philadelphia. It’s my return for her lovely “still dawn”
