In the Wake of the Dream

In the Wake of the Dream

These narratives are
five consecutive dreams
from March 31, 2014
then revisited and revised
asleep and awake
shaped into stories
touching on imagination, loss,
relationships, and acceptance.


A slipcase holds a hardcover portfolio made from discarded book covers. Inside the portfolio you will find a slot and tab book letterpress printed on muslin cloth from metal type and linoleum cuts in several colors. Each combined fiction/dream is printed in blue with the waking words trailing in gold. Three linoleum cuts are printed on Stonehenge (a ship, diagram of a wake, and a sleeping body) and held in a handmade kitakata envelope with a poem called "transverses" printed on it.

Sizes and colors vary: 5 1/2"w x 8 1/2 - 9 3/4"h (mixed colors with front cover choices of: black, dark blue, red, dark green, gray, white, process blue, brown)
Materials: Arches cover, repurposed book covers, muslin, Stonehenge, Velin Arches, kitakata, Japanese book cloth spines, letterpress from Caslon Oldstyle 471 type, linoleum cuts
