Artist statement: This little book was made early in my life as a book artist and gave me
the courage to stick it out during the years I wasn’t even aware that something called book
arts existed.

Factory made paper is complemented by homemade onionskin paper. While it takes minutes to buy
one at a shop, it took one hundred and twenty-one hours to painstakingly put together a 2.5”X 3.25”
onionskin paper at home. Within its pages a charming ditty pays homage to the Mighty Onion. Size:
2.5” X 3.25” Pages: 17 leaves. Materials: Paper, onionskin Edition size: Open Editions This book is
made to order. Production: Digital printing, skin is handmade
