Owl Dream by Marama Warren

$200.00 - Please contact 23 Sandy for current availability.
I made this book after recalling a powerful dream about an owl following the path of the power lines. I shared it with my dream group and wrote a poem in the form of a pantoum which became the text of this book. I used homemade calligraphic inks from walnut and copper to design the central image. The cover is made from handmade papers including cotton rag from old sheets. I feel comfort from this dream and making this edition of books is a way of honoring the gift of this dream.
