Brevity is a one-of-a-kind collaged artist's book I finished last week (31 pgs,, Japanese stab binding, 8.25" x 9"). It was created from a small scrap pile of beautifully printed Nepalese Lotka paper left over from previous book projects. Lotka, handmade from the bark of certain bushes growing on rocky mountainsides, is wonderfully tactile, rough to the touch, seemingly fragile but strong. This little book offers some brief observations on our modern life, inspired by a Stephen King quote:
Like all sweek dreams, it will be brief,
but brevity makes sweetness, doesn't it?
