About This Item

Anchorage, AK: Karen Stahlecker, 1995. First Edition. Paperback. Like New. Miniature Book. 2 x 1 9/16 inches. Unpaginated. [12] pp. Text consists of 6 bifolia in a gathering, stitched together, the first bifold has printed text explaining this project and the other 5 bifolia are paper samples of hand-made papers by the artist; text, clean, unmarked. Stiff plain paper wrappers with a printed handmade paper covering; binding square and tight. SA1019-002. Fine. NO LIMITATION STATED, printed as a Miniature Book Society Keepsake, Conclave XIII in Pasadena, CA, August 1995. In the text Stahlecker remarks: "I pursue the Japanese papermaking tradition. The product is often strong but delicate, translucent and versatile. Bringing paper into being from plant material is part of the allure for me. And a particular intent in plants as materials, metaphors, shapes, forms and colors, in architecture, gardens, food, medicine, textiles and wilderness is the other facet of my equation." REFERENCE: Bradbury, 20th-Century U.S. Miniature Books, No. 2794.
