A handmade book of the Symbiosis series is now being made in a very limited edition. The release date is June 21, 2011 - the summer solstice. Each book will be comprised of 14 high quality reproductions of the original mixed media pieces, printed by myself as archival pigment prints on matte paper. The images will be the same size as the originals, printed on 5x7 inch pages. The pages on Hahnemuhle smooth rag 308 gm paper - archival, no optical brighteners. It's a nice, thick paper that closely resembles the watercolor paper that I like to use for some of my original handmade book projects. The cover is embossed and of a soft pink, reflecting both the delicate and fleshy nature of the images. The result is something dainty and unique.
Artist and curator Danielle Ezzo (website / Tumblr) has written a wonderful introduction that works as a great entryway to the images in the series. Howard Forbes (website) has done a wonderful job with typographic and layout details. Each book is bound by hand, signed and numbering them in a limited edition of only 24.
You can have your own copy of Symbiosis for $90, which includes shipping in the United States. Payment can be accepted via Paypal or other arrangements.
