Riguardo questo articolo

Artist's book, one of 20 copies, plus 5 artist's proofs] all on French's Lemon Drop, Banana Split, and Shocking Yellow paper, plus a light yellow paper from Staples: white paper, Arches text wove, is sponge painted, all signed and numbered by the artist, Lois Morrison. Page size: 6 x 4-1/5 inches; 10pp. Bound by the artist: hand-sewn carrousel format, with brown polka-dot paper from Kate's Paperie over boards as endpapers, boards embedded with rare earth magnets and thin stainless squares which were cut by Julie Chen, title in black on yellow paper recessed on front panel, collage of pan pipes below title, multi-color cotton ribbon ties. A wonderful cut-out book, each doublepage spread with Ms. Morrison's fantasy animals dancing in the woods. The text reads, "Deep in the yellow woods the dance goes on / witch elephants lumbering in last. / Eve's snake still limbed / from before the fall joined them. / Even the great rabbit in the sky / came down to dance. / It made the yellow striped dog/ ecstatically happy. / Of course, the yellow goat / heard the pipes first." The text was printed with a Gocco printer in Viking-normal. The animals were Gocco-printed on left-over scraps and then gone into with acrylics, colored pencils and a pigma micro pen. The goat wears a tunic which bears the legend, "I yam a yellow goat." The cat and snake both have red tongues. The rabbit and the elephant are comely. Lois Morrison's fantasy poem and creatures are endearing and will surely bring a smile, if not an outright chuckle, to the reader / viewer. Codice inventario libreria 10936
