Creator

Description

13 broadsides by various artists, along with a pamphlet by Peter and Donna Thomas
"The paper used for the portfolio pages is commerecially made Glama from the Schoellershammer papermill in Germany. The title page was printed on a Vandercook Universal 1 press, using metal Playbill type, on paper Peter made at the Old Ways Workshop. The pamphlet was printed using polymer plates with digital Century Schoolbook and Playbill type, on Peter's cotton rag handmade paper"--Colophon.
"The binding is a simple 'folder binding' structure we developed especially for this project. Translucent folded pages, which the broadsides can slide in and out of, are stab sewn between paper covers. The paper cover has two slits cut into it, and a 'title page' (printed using antique metal Playbill type on paper made during the trip) is slid into the cover. A 5x7 photo of the gypsy wagon is also included with the broadsides. The 'folder binding' is housed in a colorful clamshell box. The front of the box has a paper label printed with an image of our gypsy wagon, letterpress printed from Donna's original linoleum cut."--http://www2.cruzio.com/~peteranddonna/2-wander.htm
