Book covers feature original prints


One-of-a-kind original book covers fan the work table in the studio today

I’ve been sorting and sifting through old and unfinished hand pulled prints then using them to make one-of-a-kind book covers. This morning I laid out the book covers I’ve made thus far using original monotypes as well as artist’s proofs from a solar plate etching I printed years ago. A real smorgasbord.

Happy Autumn

Voices in the Air (below) is from a time, years ago, when I was playing around with the idea of collaging monotypes on carved and painted plywood. I made several pieces using this technique. Voices in the Air found a wonderful home here in New Hampshire a couple of years ago. I love this piece.
