Conversation artist’s book/ title page 6.5” x 9” x .5” 2008
This book was born of a profound respect of the printmaking skills of Ms. Kari Snyder. A Florida Individual Artist Grant Winner, Kari’s intaglio prints of indigenous plants, birds, reptiles and other wildlife compelled me to ask her to collaborate on a book project.
Conversation was letterpress printed from linoleum plates, half from Snyder and half from Virgin. It has sixteen pages bound with a complex quire binding. The cover is laminated paper with Thai Banana on the outside and Japanese Katazome paper on the inside. Each artist contributed five plates and hand colored the Rives Tan paper pages. Conversation is an edition of 20 books. “Conversation” was printed at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida with special technical assistance from Seth Thompson.
