Sold Out — $45.00

A poetic retelling of the current state of the Los Angeles River and California’s drought.

The folio book is realized as one continuous piece of rice paper to mirror the form of the River. The artwork, a single brush-stroke until the water and pigment run out at the book’s end, was designed to echo the themes of the writing.

The cover was sourced and repurposed from native California Doug Fir trees. Each book was a handmade and unique edition of 25.
