My recent artist book is called: Some Men I Know - and it is a series of ten profiles created full-scale (to size of an iPhone screen) using traditional techniques of drypoint and spit-bite etch. By using the screen capture function, I save the profile pic of my guy-pals and then begin scratching their likeness into a metal plate. The result is a tiny print on Japanese Washi tissue that is also laminated onto BFK cotton paper (chine colle).
Now the exciting part - I have two of my artist books; Some Men I Know and Masc-U-Line included in an international exhibition of handmade books at the Redland Museum in Queensland, Australia! The exhibition, Personal Histories, will open Oct. 12, 2014.
