About this piece:

A bundle of aeronautical maps made me think of a plane flying over the horizon. And that inspired this book, with a sewn board binding covered in stitched indigo flax paper. The bundle of maps, tinted with an acrylic wash, became the book’s 70 signatures. They are link stitched to mimic map lines across the spine. A paper airplane soars from beyond the blue horizon.
