ARTIST'S BOOKS
Each book is hand-printed in a limited edition of 20 or fewer.
Purchasing details are here. Thank you for your interest.

All artworks in these books are handmade. Except for concertinas, the bindings are thread-stitched. Consisting of forty or fewer leaves, the format is like block books, except however, I use various types of hand-printing methods, not just woodblocks. The stories are all original, many based upon years of research. Text is kept to the barest minimum for poetic effect.

Some of my books, like numbers one, two and five above, are printed on Roterfaden paper from Germany, while some specialty papers like Fabriano Ingres, full sheets, are sourced from Jackson's Art Supplies in the U.K. Others are printed on Hahnemuhle (German) and Midori (Japanese) paper.
