In this project, I’ve taken snippets out of my favorite essays that I’ve written over the past ten years that I've been writing, and coupled them with some of my favorite woodcuts. You might recognize some of the snippets from essays that have been published here or there in magazines and the web, but some of them are being released here for the first time.
I’ve taken this one step further, and have printed out the eight essay/prints onto heavy museum-grade parchment, and encased the set in a folio that I made myself out of hand-made papers. You can preview some of the pages on the Trout Lily Studios website.
As I'm building these one at a time, I won't have them for sale on the website, but if you're interested in purchasing one, let me know. My plans are to experiment with different materials, and to expand the number of essay/prints as I figure out just the right piece of essay for each image.
