Artists' Book (handmade)
Retold and illustrated by Dale DeArmond
Edition of 5 (an additional two were produced)
Overall size: 9" x 10"
Editor's note: this artists' book consists of an envelope cover, two double-sided text pages, and three original wood engraving illustrations with linocut borders. A colophon is included. The engravings and linocuts were hand pulled by the artist from the original blocks on all rag, acid free paper: Rives standard white for the engravings; Rives BFK gray for the portfolio and borders; and Arches text wove paper for the overlay.
The story, handwritten by DeArmond, is presented on handmade Japanese paper. In addition to the five publicly-offered copies produced, an additional two were made and designated not for sale. Produced by the artist in September, 1992.
A copy is archived with the Anchorage Museum and the Juneau-Douglas City Museum. With respect to this currently unavailable DeArmond work, the story pages from this book will not be shown here. Click on any following illustration for more information.
