Creech/Parke-Harrison, Listening to the Earth, 2003

This was an edition of seventy-five books in a threepiece full paper case binding. I had the cover papers made by Dieu Donné to reflect the atmospheric quality of Robert Parke-Harrison’s images and blended two different stamping foils for the titling. The endsections are threepiece construction with a sewn interior linen hinge. Those papers were made by Twinrocker. 53.5 x 42.5 x 4 centimeters. Created 2003.
