While doing prints based on Thelonious Monk’s music, I did this small book upon invitation for a miniature artists’ book exhibition at the National Library of Tasmania.  This is an “origami book,” made from one sheet of paper printed on both sides and folded into the bookform.

The Kind of Blue (1959) album by Miles Davis, with John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Bill Evans, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb is an example of classic modal jazz. “There will be fewer chords,” Davis told them, “but infinite possibilities as to what to do with them.” Modal was collaboratively created and produced by Charles Cohan and John Risseeuw in loving tribute to Davis’ achievement, in Cortona, Italy, during July 2007, using drypoint intaglio and relief on Magnani Pescia blue. Paul Chambers, after “All Blues” was recorded in one take, said, “Damn, that’s a hard mother.
