New artist's book!: "Stitching speechless"

I've just finished the first copy of the new artist's book from blue bluer books:

stitching speechless

It's been at least 3 years in the making, so I'm thrilled to finally have a finished copy to feature here.

Stitching speechless features 17 haiku by Zen art and haiku scholar Stephen Addiss. I'll post more information about the process of creating it soon, but for now I will just share some photos.

If you'd like to learn more about stitching speechless and see it in person, I'll be talking about it at Frank Gallery in Chapel Hill this Thursday evening, July 7th. The event will feature two fantastic fellow local book artists talking about their work as well: John Davis and Ariel Rudolph. Refreshments will start around 6 p.m.; the talk will begin around 6:30 or so.

In the meantime, here are some more photos:
