"Thousandth Time" was originally commissioned by my mother in the wake of my older brother's death. It's taken me four years to complete the project. I printed it from handset Perpetua at Stern & Faye's print farm in the Skagit Valley in the winter of 2012, and I've slowly devised and refined the binding structure in my own studio over the course of the last three years. As always, the design was based first and foremost on the type. The binding was inspired by traditional shoji screens and art by Jules Faye, and the slipcase was designed in collaboration with Carolina Veenstra.
