A Certain Slant of Light...A Graphic Response.

Serafina, NM: 2019. Artist's book, one in a series of three, on Canson Text paper, signed on the colophon, numbered and dated by the artist, Paul Maurer. Bound: accordion fold with covers of Fabriano Watercolor paper, housed in deep blue envelope made of cover stock with collaged element on front, and tabs fastening envelope stamped with "e" and "d" in plum. Page size: 7 x 8-3/4 inches; 22pp, including one with folded flap (opposite the verse "This is my letter to the world." Bound: accordion style with painted Fabriano Watercolor wrappers at either end. The artist has used a Bryer for painting along with metal hand type and ornaments as well as old letterpress plates and dingbats, sponge painting and hand-cut rubber blocks printed with water-based printing inks and watercolors, some collage, metallic markers, and calligraphy executed in sumi ink and metal pens on Canson Text paper. Colors are exuberant: yellow and coral and pink with aqua and spring green borders with deeper shades of mauve added for verses on the reverse of the leporello. It is a riot of color and design highlighting the words of Emily Dickinson - never overpowering them but rather dancing around them in celebration. Item #11443
