Handmade Accordion Fold Book "Botanicals of the Sonoran Desert"
Limited Edition of 50, signed and numbered by the artist Teresa Villegas
These books are created by hand carving, then pulling relief prints for the illustrations. After the larger hand pulled prints were finished, they were then scanned into a digital file so they could be reduced in size for the accordion fold format. The books are printed with special archival fade proof inks to get the super rich matt black on the gorgeous heavy rag paper. The artist then assembles them. Because of the time it takes to make these books they are only offered as a limited edition of 50. When they are all sold there will be no more. Comes packaged in a gift box with tissue paper, label and ribbon ready for gift giving.
Botanicals of the Sonoran Desert is one of two books offered as a limited edition of 50. Words below the images of the botanicals are the latin genus species names of the plant. An exquisit little book for lovers of the Sonoran Desert and botanical art.
