Seven Deadly Prints

I just finished a 4-flap enclosure to house this suite of prints I made as a companion to Catholics. Each of the seven images is centered around a communion wafer/solar cross, which was printed with heavy impression from photopolymer plates. Surrounding this central image is a Bruce Rogers–inspired frame printed from metal typographic ornaments that alchemically shifts from print to print. The wafers/solar crosses animate a sequence that comments on narrative threads included in the artist's book, while also operating as an independent group. The suite was printed in an edition of ten, and is available either individually or paired with the book in a deluxe edition.

The Drift Plain Collective is representing once again this weekend, as they bring a bunch of chapbooks, zines, broadsides, and prints to the 2015 Vancouver Art/Book Fair. They'll have copies of RUNX TALES and Catholics on hand, as well as some spectacular books and ephemera by Elizabeth Boyne, Karen Carcia, Cody Gieselman, Kimberly Maher, Elizabeth Munger, Kalmia Strong, and more. A culmination of Vancouver's Artists' Book Week, the Vancouver Art/Book Fair is hosted October 17–18 by Project Space, and is free and open to the public.
