Squirrel (2008) 2 1/2 x 2 3/8 inches. (The slipcase measures 2 3/4 x 2 1/2 inches.)

Six lively illustrations of squirrels of North America are cut in silhouette over a handmade paper accordion. The binding is a “limp vellum” binding and the translucency of the skin reveals an illustration of a squirrel on the front cover. The slipcase is bound on the top and bottom with squirrel skin that Donna tanned using an old way of preserving skins that uses non-toxic animal brains!
