Birthdayscape 2009

keepsake for participants

Third in a series of accordion-fold book keepsakes for a group of women taking an annual trip to some exotic place. This version was printed using a press we developed which allows us to print on a long sheet. The paper is a single sheet 80 inches long.

This piece was for the January 2009 trip to the Island of Women off the coast of Cancún.

You can see the process here.

Size: 4.25” x 6.5”

Edition: 20 copies

Production notes: The cover is printed from metal type. The inside is printed from hand inked 130 year-old wood type via letterpress in a single run.
