off to the races, er, cleveland!

 i'll be teaching this weekend
at the morgan conservatory 
and then again next week with aimee lee
and whilst there
 this show shall open
with work from several papermakers
using eastern papers/techniques
in their work
i'm honored to be in this group
and i've heard there will be a catalog.
and
this is the latest book, 
just sewn together
still nameless
another of the hortus siccus series.
a soft, 
landscape of a book
with drawing and stitching and shifu
and flax and cotton and silk
and egg!
it's a bit like
a sketchbook of the north country,
simple,
really.

The way the selvedges & fringe form a natural boundary to the cover is very satisfying.
