Messenger consists of five folios with text by the artist, printed letterpress from polymer plates. Within each folio is an offset lithograph reproduced from an original monotype by the artist. The birds in this book - a Northern Flicker, Barred Owl, Evening Grosbeak, Bald Eagle and Pileated Woodpecker - are messengers, urging us to pay attention to the world around and within us. Messenger is printed in an edition of forty, and housed in a clamshell box made by Linda Lembke of Green River Bindery. Thirteen copies remain. 14" x 11 1/2". $650
