But Move Not is a collaboration. The text is a poem by Eder J. Williams written for this project and the book was designed, letterpress printed, and hand bound by Suzanne Sawyer. It was inspired by a canoe trip to the mangroves of 10,000 Islands off the coast of Florida. It is a drum leaf binding and the text and images were printed using photopolymer plates.
