The Southwest (2010). Donna Thomas. 2 1/4 by 1 3/4 inches. This book is a series of watercolor paintings of landscapes that Donna painted in National Parks we passed through in the Southwest during our wandering book artist's gypsy wagon trip in April and May of 2010. The watercolor illustrations have been color copied on Peter's handmade paper. Pictographs, patterned after Navajo rock paintings, have been stenciled on the first and last pages using pigments gathered from the base of ? rock in Sedona, AZ. The panels used to bind the book are covered with Peter's paper made from cotton rag mixed with Yucca fiber gathered in the high desert near the Calfornia Arizona border. 16 accordion pages. 50 copies $55.
