::: to make a single copy of this book each cover and page was cut by hand with a die cutter. each cover and title page was hand stamped. the title of the book was die stamped one letter at a time on the cover and title page. the back cover was hand stamped. each word and image was registered and hand printed on every page. to do all this with some consistency several jigs had to be created and tested for these processes. to make the back of the book all the pages had to be aligned and laminated together also by hand. the square opening was then masked off and filled with powdered graphite and polyurethane and then more graphite and more polyurethane. finally a dried flower was selected and carefully inset into the graphite. then each book was inspected sanded and cleaned. all art work, photos, design and layout by simple box construction/ a death cinematic.
