LOST TO LIKES

Based on a Korean sijo poem by Kim Kwang’uk, 1580–1658. 
Typographic moire motions using various sizes of Memphis and Futura Extra Bold Condensed typefaces. Letterpress front and end matter.
Case bound in hand-made paper-wrapped cover boards, with quarter Kraft-tex leather binding, and ribbon. Edition of 10, plus one artist proof; all signed and numbered. It measures 10.125 x 7.75 x 0.625 inches closed (26 x 19.6 x 1.6 cm), 10.125 x 15.5 inches (26 x 39 cm) when open.

My artist books, broadsides, and loose-leaf editions are published in very small numbers, as low as five. All are hand-printed and hand-bound (in the case of books) by me, all are signed and numbered. While I am trying to be perfect, I am human, not a machine. Some variations in the editioned work are to be expected due to the processes, materials, and the artist’s change of mind. It is exactly what makes the work collectible: each piece is an original work of art. The pieces employ printmaking like original etchings, woodcuts, carborundum, screen prints, monotype, monoprint, and letterpress. Nothing is produced using digital reproduction methods.
