Flores is the first 'field journal of sorts' in an ongoing project. The pages of this artist's book are made from an orphaned Encyclopedia Britannica; volume PLANTS to RAYM. Each page contains a line drawing study of a flower, on top of the existing content. Common and Latin names for each flower are hand lettered onto the pages to encourage learning. This project is intended to be a work of book art and an altered book project but it also contains a snapshot of the layers of knowledge, meaning, and information that exist in the world and that can easily over- and under-whelm us in the digital era.
The book is hinge-accordion bound with mock half bound hard covers. Each page is hand lettered, illustrated, and inked by the artist. This book is an unique edition of 1.
