The Walk is a sculptural artist book that encourages us to pause and reflect. Close-up images of the milkweed pod are coupled with two narratives – one my own, and the other a diary excerpt of 19th century Swiss philosopher Henri-Frederik Amiel. Original monotypes have been reproduced as offset lithographs for this edition. The Walk is letterpress printed and housed in a wrapper and slipcase made by Linda Lembke of Green River Bindery. 8" x 7".
Edition of 25.
"If you are conscious of something new - thought or feeling, wakening in the depths of your being - do not be in a hurry to let in light upon it, to look at it; let the springing germ have the protection of being forgotten, hedge it round with quiet, and do not break in upon its darkness; let it take shape and grow, and not a word of your happiness to anyone! Sacred work of nature it is, all conception should be enwrapped by the triple veil of modesty, silence and night." - Henri Frederik Ariel
