Some of my favorites pieces began as gifts for friends. When I’m trying to surprise someone with a special treat, I seem to be at my most unself-conscious. And the results often surprise me – the objects seem to have come into existence as if by magic, not any labor or planning of my own. ‘Tis the Season (2018) is just such a project. This tunnel book started as a gift and has been re-imagined into an editioned artist’s book. This sculptural work features five relief prints hinged with Arches Cover Black and bound in a simple case with bone clasp closure. See all the details, along with a video of the innards, at the Books for Sale page.
