The wind blows, snow flutters all around and the stars glint in the sky. I tried to capture the vastness of the evening sky and the wonder of looking up into a shower of snowflakes in my book Wind & Snow. This miniature can be opened out into a star shape and hung as an ornament or opened up and “read” as a book.
The book features digital images of one of my relief prints of snow flakes digitally collaged with photographs of the sky at dawn and dust from my front yard in the northern United States. The relief block for this book was carved and then hand printed on my etching press, scanned and digitally painted and collaged.
