Wesleyville Book Project

Wesleyville Book Project

Wesleyville is an artist's book created by myself & Tara Bryan.  It was completed over a couple of years between Norton's Cove Studio here in New-Wes-Valley and Tara's Walking Bird Press in Flatrock, NL.

  • edition of 100 + artists' proofs
  • signed and numbered by the artists
  • accordion fold 
  • letterpress printed with six original linocut prints and type
  • hand bound in sailcloth covers complete with grommet for hanging
  • closed, the book measures 5.25 inches high  x 7.25 inches wide
  • open (hanging) the book measures 54.5 inches high x 7.25 inches wide

These books were printed in the spring of 2018.  Tragically, after a struggle with the worst of all c-words, Tara left this world just a couple of years later.  I miss her more than I can say.  I loved working with her, and I learned lots every day we were together.  Tara was a natural teacher, and had many skills worth sharing.  We had planned to make a number of these books- this was meant to be the first of a series; Greenspond was planned to be next in the line-up.  

It's not often that I keep a piece of my own artwork, but of course, this one is full of special memories, and I have kept one just for me.
