Handmade Accordion Fold Book "What the Desert Heart Knows"
Limited Edition of 50, signed and numbered by the artist Teresa Villegas
This particular book was 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 and hand stitches with cotton embroidery thread for the "rain" onto the folded panel. Because of the time it takes to hand stitch 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 to yourself or another.
