Touch is a tunnel book that is letterpress printed. The inside pages are made entirely of handmade paper (a variety of hemp, treat abaca, kozo, and cotton). The text describes body language I noticed between my parents, and then later between myself and a man I loved. The story is illustrated with mute swans–incapable of making sounds, they communicate solely through touch. Each book is approximately 7.5″ x 8.5″ and has a tunnel that expands to approximately 12″. Hardcover with hand-marbled paper and cloth. Edition of 2, varied. 2014. $400.
