The Shared Earth Series

groundwork is the first in a series of three handmade books from my Ancient Indian Mounds project.  It is an accordion fold book that represents the timeline of mound construction in northeastern Louisiana - approximately 3600 BC to AD 1650.  There are eight images in the book which measures 5x5 inches when closed.  The photographs are printed using carbon ink on uncoated Fabriano Artistico paper which gives them a unique appearance.  The covers are made from binders board covered in Hahnemuhle Bugra paper with handmade paper inserts.  The book measures approximately four feet long when fully opened.

The Ancient City of Poverty Point is the second book in the Ancient Indian Mounds project.  It is a Japanese Stab bound book that tells the story of Poverty Point, once the largest city in North America, now a historic site in rural northeastern Louisiana.  Constructed using carbon inks on cotton paper, it contains 11 images and 11 pages of text and measures approximately 6x9 inches.  The covers are made of handmade mulberry paper that have been dyed with black walnut dye made from walnuts collected from the north ridges at Poverty Point.

The two artist books in the series below represent an idea, thought, complaint, or question that I needed both words and images to express.  The photographs were all taken in northeastern Louisiana.  They are bound together in these collections to create something else, something more than I imagined when I first pressed the shutter.  It's only with time that they have sorted themselves out of their initial pigeonholes and, along wiith a small amount of text, found new stories to tell.

The books are crafted using carbon pigment inks on cotton paper.  Mulberry, lotka or other similar natural handmade papers are used for the soft covers.  They measure approximately 5x7 inches.
