Martine’s theme is taken from her own garden, images printed from actual foliage.
Similar to Martine, I used garden foliage, inked it up and printed directly, with additional frottage and glued pressed blooms and leaves over it and added several nature-based haiku.
Using beetroot juice, collage and poetry Ptrzia’s book is an edition of 12 done in her usual high standard.
Using pulp printing the image is embedded into the paper and not images added to a sheet.
Svenja’s herbarium reminds somewhat of the Voynich Manuscript even if hers isn’t as obscure!
I’m afraid to tell Kathleen Nartuhi’s book got lost – it’s too painful a tale to tell. (It wasn’t the post office’s fault this time!)
All the collaborations, hosted by Cheryl Penn can also be viewed on An Encyclopedia of Everything where other books, not part of collaborations, are also posted.
This was my last collaboration with this group I’m sad to say. Postage costs, the time and art materials it took got to be overwhelming.
