The prints on the pages are in green, black, blue , gray, etc., and are of thick woody areas. There are red gates and flying turkeys - some of the turkeys are laser printed. Plastic, Tyvek and Frasier's passport paper are all used in the inventive collages that comprise each page. Pop up turkeys? Turkey feet? What more could anyone want in an artist's book?! Item #9946
