West Coast Prepping for print bombing

For our next print bombing - this time in SAN FRANCISCO - Book Bombs is trying something a little different. The paper and print began on the West Coast by Michelle, and then traveled to the East Coast to be completed by Mary. Here are some images of what Michelle started.

The print is on paper made from Andean Pampas grass seed hair (see posts here and here about using the stalks and leaves of that plant). Above, a close up of a corner of a wet sheet.

A plane image was stenciled onto the wet sheets in paper pulp, made from leftover scraps of paper from our Axis Alley installation.

When dry, a woodblock of pampas grass seed hair was printed.

The prints have now been shipped off to Mary - keep your eyes peeled for how this print evolves.
