About this piece:
Alice Austin: “Bloom is a book in which the topic of birth is both pondered and expressed. My son was born when I was twenty-eight and “Bloom” expresses this through paste paper monoprints that extend in a long accordion and a central floral pop-up shape.” The text is written by the artist and printed on Rives heavyweight paper, on a Vandercook proof press, using hand set type. Comes with archival box.
