VIOLET ISLE

November 8, 2009

Thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate the book launch and exhibition opening of Violet Isle. Some of you who couldn’t attend the opening in New York requested to see some of the installation photographs.   We are also including our first glimpse of the limited edition version of the book, which made its debut at Ricco Maresca Gallery last week.  The design of this limited edition prototype was inspired by the handmade book workshop in Matanzas, Cuba, which often incorporates cardboard, string, and other everyday materials in their book designs.

For those of you who missed the opening and gallery talk,  the Violet Isle exhibition at Ricco Maresca runs through Saturday, January 2, 2010.-–Alex and Rebecca
