Description

About this piece:

A dream or perhaps a fantasy about waking with a snake under a starlit desert sky, this book describes a titillating experience in the southwest canyon
country. A slotted zig zag book with color monoprint images on Rives lightweight buff and laser transfer text. Page backs are hand painted and stenciled. The covers are snakeskin overlaid with hand-tinted sharkskin paper. Housed in a custom box with leather spine, with hand painted cloth covers and a hand painted, recessed label on the front cover.

inspired by a short story by Carolyn Hull

Materials:

paper, ink, book board, decorative papers, snake skin, acrylic, vegetable tanned calf, transferred laser toner
