Here are some process and finished images of three look books, as part of collaboration with Ponomo. Hannah of Ponomo did a lot of the accent work on these look books, adding the rivets and coming up with the leather strapping for a closure. I also had my friend Mark of The Dunstan Press, print the title plates on the covers of the book.
This is my first attempt at an artist book, I made it for the grand opening show at Running with Scissors. It is a linoleum print, quarter bound, with fabric spine and marbled paper cover. This was also the first project I was able to use my new kwikprint machine, to make a title card to inlay to the front cover of the book.
Finished my print for the June Frame Show at Pinecone and Chickadee. For this piece I wanted to try and make something different. The past few shows I have done, I always made some kind of vector print in the computer. So this time I made a speedball print. For the past couple of months I have been getting back into making more linoleum and speedball prints. With this print I cut two blocks and try a different combinations of colors, papers and printing order. When I was happy with a combination, I then bound with some more paper to the mat board with a chain stitch. I wanted to give this piece a story book feel.
Just finished a small edition of 30 prints. It took me a little longer to print after several tries on a rolling press. I ended up having them printed at my friends shop Dunstan press on his Heidelberg press. You can now purchase one off my Etsy Store. http://www.etsy.com/listing/151355799/read-or-die-print
I also want to thank my Friend Ian Kahn for giving me the idea for the Read or Die part.
