Blue Peach by Alice Simpson

$500.00 - Please contact 23 Sandy for current availability.

When I first began making books in 1992, I hated the time wasted, pardon the pun, ruminating about what I wanted to create a book about, so I chose the peach as a subject, and made one after another with that theme. Why the peach? Because my creative experience is juicy, jubilant, sensual and delicious like the fruit. Rumi’s 13th Century poetry perfectly describes the pleasure I find in the creative process.
