Sierra Haiku folio 2014

For the past two years it seems Mary and I have been working hard on the side a day here a day there, squeezing in a set of prints that celebrates our backpacking trip careers along the crest of the Sierra Nevada. Mary and I collaborated together on the imagery, she carved the linocut blocks from either one of my photos or out of her sketch book/journal. the Haiku poetry I wrote while we hiked in the backcountry and was hand set in lead type. In total we made eight prints in the folio and the folio is an edition of ten. Mary printed the whole folio at KALA, a print studio where she has been doing an artist residence. The letter press she used is an old Vandercook SP20.
