Boca Raton, FL: Jaffe Center for Book Arts, 2015. Artist's book, one of 10 variable copies, on Arches 88 paper, signed by the artists, Dorothy Simpson Krause and Stephanie Wolff.

Stephanie Wolff was the current Salzburg Artist in Residence at the Jaffe Center when she and Dorothy Krause, the first Resident, decided to collaborate on this ode to Florida. Cover and pages incorporate printing on the Center's Vandercook 4 proof press using wood type, metal and collagraph plates, as well as blind printing of a polymer plate map of the area.
A variety of pigment prints of vintage documents, maps, photographs and botanicals were transferred onto the pages, creating the variability of this edition. The colophon with a map of Florida was laser printed. Because of the binding structure, this book lends itself to being displayed as a sculptural object. Item #11079
