Goodbye Bonita Lagoon: A Papermaker's Elegy.

Thomas, Donna (illus.)

Santa Cruz: Peter & Donna Thomas, 2023. Octavo. (38)ff. One of thirty copies, signed by the Thomases at the colophon. The artists' statement describes this project as an "eco-lament" that at once honors and mourns their neighborhood temperate tidal lagoon, the loss of which appears more and more insurmountable. The representation of such looming material devastation is here treated with equal material care and attention; each section of the complex semi-accordion structure exhibits a unique paper made from different plants native to the lagoon. Accordion-bound into folio of cloth-covered boards backed in leather. Very fine. Item #33414

Price: $1,500.00
