Nourish is an unbound artist book composed of eight twice-folded folios printed on both sides and housed in a handcrafted collapsible bamboo box. These pages have endured over 100 runs through the Vandercook letterpress.
Jacobs explores new artistic territory in this project; investigating color by mapping out fifteen different multi-color reduction relief prints, and experimenting with layering images on transparent paper.
