Artwork Shop  
5.5 x 8.5 in

These narratives are five consecutive dreams from March 31, 2014 then revisited and revised, asleep and awake, shaped into stories (transverses) touching on imagination, loss, relationships, and acceptance. A slipcase holds a hardcover portfolio made from discarded book covers. Inside the portfolio you will find a slot and tab book letterpress printed on muslin cloth from metal type and linoleum cuts in several colors. Each combined fiction/dream is printed in blue with the waking words trailing in gold. Three linoleum cuts are printed on Stonehenge (a ship, diagram of a wake, and a sleeping body) and held in a handmade kitakata envelope with a poem called "transverses" printed on it. Sizes and colors vary: 5 1/2"w x 8 1/2 - 9 3/4"h (mixed colors with front cover choices of: black, dark blue, red, dark green, gray, white, process blue, brown) Materials: Arches cover, repurposed book covers, muslin, Stonehenge, Velin Arches, kitakata, Japanese book cloth spines, letterpress from Caslon Oldstyle 471 type, linoleum cuts
