Outlander - A mixed media Artist's book by Ayin Es.

Outlander, 2021, is a mixed media, limited edition Artist's book basically about the great outdoors, or walking, or hiking, or getting lost in the wilderness, or maybe even in ones mind. Going on an excursion can be both confusing and eye-opening. One may need certain survival skills to navigate their way. And if given the opportunity and the right tools to opening up ones self to explore the land, a person can realize more than they may ever know. However, since this is art and art shouldn't always make complete sense, interpret it as you wish.

This book has an embroidered cover and little black, hand-cut feet along the bottom of the book. The interior pages include a few reproductions, original watercolors, lino block prints, photographs, handwritten pages, and original drawings too--both in graphite and pen. There is also an original 13 x 14-inch hand-drawn fold-out map made with graphite, pen, and colored pencil on both the front and back sides.

Housed in a recycled cigar box with a cloth tab and a block print label, Outlander comes with a hand-carved bow drill kit for making a fire, a military-style compass, and a fully-stocked mini first aid kit. Handbound by the artist with pamphlet stitching; fine papers include Strathmore, Moab Legion, Arches, Rives BFK, and other imported papers. All book are signed and numbered.
