Vessel is a single signature of 30 contact printed pages using botanic specimens. The book has a soft cover of dark purple Katie McGregor handmade paper, and is housed in an eco printed silk bag, placed in a black fabric covered phase box lined with botanic contact prints. An Emily Dickinson poem, written in bronze acrylic ink, reads: Where ships of purple gently toss/ On seas of daffodil,/ Fantastic sailors mingle,/ And then - the wharf is still.
