Scribbles in a Sandstorm - Artist's book by Carol Es - cover on stack of other books

This is a 7 x 7 inch hardcover, hand bound Artist book containing a removable spine, which enables the accordion-folded block to unfold and display a 40-inch long, colorful printed panorama!

On the flip side is a small art collection of rare prints, including a Gocco print on banana paper, a silver-inked letterpress print on black paper, and a giclee print on watercolor paper, as well as a hand bound-in excerpt from the artist's very personal sketchbook. The book also includes an original signed sketch, each as unusual as the next.

This very unique publication was a collaboration between the artist and the publisher, Chance Press, whereas the publishing of the book is nothing short of a work of art in and of itself. It is constructed completely by hand and features boutique paper-backed bookcloth, papers from Moab, Canson, Arches, and Rives, and is printed using archival Epson Ultrachrome K3 inks. Because of the time and expense involved in producing each copy, the edition was strictly limited to 20 copies.
