This leather bound artist’s book contains a series of hand printed lithographs by the artist to accompany a series of 10 poems by 10 poets. Book Works designed and letterpress printed the poems and text, and constructed the book pages using foredge folds. Each book has a slightly different hand coloured cover working from the artist’s original, and uses calfskin and black goatskin for the binding. The feathered onlays are made from hand coloured goatskin, and the figure on the front cover is debossed with a coloured ink. Each book comes with a solander box.
