Spotted One Day

2009. 5 1/4" x 5 1/2". A short scene that juxtaposes children growing up with the releasing of ladybugs in the spring. Letterpress printed from wood type, handset metal Caslon Oldstyle type, one photpolymer plate and a linoleum block of carved leaves on Somerset all-cotton paper. Leaf-printed bookcloth wraps Davey board for the hard covers. The pages have flaps that fold up or down to reveal the text. The large words on the top of the flaps change as you interact with them: FLOWN becomes OWN, for example. Coptic bound with a curved needle.
$225

 

 
For Alisa Golden making books is the natural bridge between her writing and art. Through layered imagery and poetic language she invites the reader to experience multiple meanings, all bound in structures that echo the contents. After years of working precisely with printmaking techniques, primarily letterpress, and creating editioned works, she is currently exploring the spontaneity of ink painting in her one-of-a-kind books. In our 2008 exhibition, she has taken her works even further, incorporating felted works and multiple objects. In addition to her studio practice, she teaches at California College of the Arts, the San Francisco Art Institute, and the San Francisco Center for the Book. She is the author of four instructional books: Creating Handmade Books, Unique Handmade Books, Expressive Handmade Books (Sterling Publishing.) and Painted Paper .
