Un-Limited

I have been fortunate to work on the design and binding of fifteen portfolios with a limited edition of 15 prints by a very talented group of six artists. Each of them producing one to three images for the suite, hosted at Julia Talcott's studio and under her supervision of the entire project. The result is a beautiful set of prints, different in style and technique, consistent by the dimensions, the paper and the use of the same two colors, red and blue. Leo Espinosa, first involved in the project, had the desire to not be limited by a theme and gather the edition with the title (Un)Limited. The following is the list of artists that contributed to the edition:
Julia Talcott, Alan Witschonke, Susy Pilgrim-Waters, Annie Silverman, Annie Bissett
and Rob Dunlavey.
I'm sewing the portfolios with Indigo Cave Paper, red linen thread and cotton ribbons closure. The prints are protected and wrapped in Japanese kozo paper. This project started months ago, during the cold months of winter and it has been an honor to work now on the final step, after a long and evolving plan.
Rob Dunlavey made available a comprehensive set of photos of the work in progress, from which the last two pictures on this post come from.
