This book illuminates how few words are needed to ignite the imagination of the reader. It is part of a larger body of work that I have created in this direction since 1994 which I refer to as 'text paintings'. A Colorful Tale was created for an exhibition ENGAGE: Color, Ritual & Material Studies at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania (November 2014). It uses a stark white paper with a special 'hammered' surface for both text block and the entire case binding.
