About the Artist

Briony Morrow-Cribbs (Freeland) received a 2007 GAP for materials and binding costs associated with the production of a limited edition hand-made book. Morrow-Cribbs will create etchings for an illustrated version of Brigit Pegeen Kelly’s prose poem Iskandariya. “As currently planned, the book will be octavo (16 pages with 8 leaves), with the text letter-pressed on handmade paper. Each spread of text pages will be separated by a folded sheet of Japanese Kitakata paper with an etching facing each page of text. There will also be an etched frontis and tailpiece for a total of eight etchings. All the etchings will be printed at my own studio, the Cat Skinner Press…I feel that in this time of digital information the hand-made book has enormous importance and impact.”
