A Library can be an awe-inspiring place to walk through, to research, find stories, be inspired, or a library can be a chair with a shelf of treasured books nearby in a favorite corner. It all comes down to the books and this is my homage to the Library.
Library Book is an 8 page accordion book hand-printed from linoleum blocks on my antique Kelton & Sons press. The prints are on a variety of papers, including pages from guidebooks, dictionaries, and manuals. The pages are hinged with paper, the spine is tyvek and rice paper. On the back page is a digital print of a library checkout card. The cover is museum board covered with paper, and a small print.
There are 50 copies in the edition. It is just under 2" square and opens fully to 14". Each copy is signed and numbered. Please note that since I have printed directly on book pages, each book will be slightly different and unique.
