This is the first in the series of books made for printers as a way to share printing effects in journal form. Started in 2000, this book is small in edition number but high powered and saturated with inks of all kinds. The print artists activated a number of sheets and them sent them to Booklyn. The multi colored etchings are by Felice "clean hands" Tebbe, pulled at Iowa's print shop with the 'dirty hands' publisher. The Inkjet printing by Allerslev is of various and sundry plant images. The combination chine colle /Xerox /letterpress stuff is Wagner. The special fold out etching is by Amanda Taylor. Old book covers, dingbats, woven basket patterns, kelp, seaweed, Styrofoam cups, record slip mats, a piece of birch bark, and worm trail silicon casts are among the images printed by the publisher over the activated sheets. Bound at Booklyn.
