My third title for Edition Four, #90 True Grit just made it into 2012 by being completed a few days before Christmas. I posted it out to members of Group 11 on 2nd January.
I decided to ignore the obvious connections to the title True Grit, and thought the most fitting example of unfaltering courage and true grit are the asylum seekers who flee their homeland for Australia by taking risky and dangerous journeys with people smugglers in a desperate attempt to find peace and freedom from persecution.
The book is made up of digital prints of five linocuts with a collage mounted in 3D into Canson card and shows a small fishing boat battling huge seas. There is also a text page and a colophon.
I have really enjoyed being part of BookArtObject in 2012 and working on this great project. I'd like to thank Sara Bowen and the others working behind the scenes who have made this such a great experience. I'm looking forward to participating in Edition 5.
