Introducing Jessica Spring
Horse Power, Our Newest Artist Book Installation
In the back room this month we are very proud to launch a new artist book by Jessica Spring. Horse Power, a limited-edition artist book, letterpress printed on handmade horsehair paper, traces the history of this majestic animal through domestication and popular culture.
Horse Power is displayed within The Horse Show, an installation portraying the human/equine connection. Jessica Spring is the proprietor of Springtide Press in Tacoma, Washington where she designs, prints and binds unique artist books, broadsides and ephemera incorporating handmade paper and letterpress printing. Learn more about Horse Power here.
We also invite you to join us at the Gallery on August 1, 2009, at 4:00 p.m. when Jessica will present a talk and demonstrate the letterpress process. She’ll bring her tabletop Sigwalt letterpress, so come and print yourself a keepsake.
