In 2013, we had a Steamroller Print Day during the Printocracy festival at BookWorks in Asheville, NC. My huge print, 4×4′, became the starting point for this book. The main text is “The Reverse Side is also the Reverse Side” With ink washes and collage on the back side, the pages became a starting point for studies of value gradation, with text relating to Value as an element of design as well as a fundamental principle in life.
