Botanica by Natalie Stopka
This artist book holds a collection of 12 eco prints, made on one late summer day in the Catskill Mountains. Each image is made only from the dye inherent to the plant. Gathered from the garden and foraged from the fields, these plant prints are the portrait of a place and time. Because some of the colorants in each image are not lightfast, they will gradually fade over time, leaving only the permanent dyes. The artist book is bound in naturally dyed and printed silk joined with a herringbone stitch.
The inaugural European artists’ book event will take place this year in London on Saturday the 21st July 2012.
KALEID editions invites submissions from European based artists for an exhibition and book fair; to showcase the best of artists’ books to an international audience, to attract private and public collections and to establish a networking event for creative practitioners.
KALEID 2012 is supported by Art Academy London, the British National Art Library and English Arts Council’s Saison Poetry Library.
