printing by hand

A year and a half ago I met Lena Corwin at her charming home in Brooklyn. I had been asked to design a book project she was working on, and I wanted to meet her and get a feel for things. Along one wall of her studio hung all the patterns she had designed for the book. I loved them all... I love her style, I love her sense of color. They were beautiful, and so is, in my humble opinion, the end result.  

You can see more projects from the book here, and a Q + A with Lena here.
