In Forests

In Forests is a collection of unique (one-of-a-kind) artist's books holding original folios created in forests. Pages include drawing, painting and hand lettering in ink, watercolor, gouache and pencil on watercolor paper. Proportions inspired by medieval manuscripts are used for page formatting, but content is otherwise unplanned and completed outdoors. Each book is a case-bound accordion structure with 15 pages, imagery front and back, covers of cloth and paste-painted tyvek, and matching slipcase.
