After a Light Misty Rain
7.5 x 20.25 in
After a Light Misty Rain is an artist’s book about quiet phenomena detected while walking around a naturally occurring lake late fall.
The poetry lines slowly sway back and forth and float downward, like a falling leaf that subtly lands on the last page. Between each stanza is a sheet of Japanese silk tissue, which creates a sound of leaves lightly rustling in the wind as the page is turned.
After a Light Misty Rain was written and created by Tracy Harp. The book was made by hand using rice and silk papers handset in Centaur eighteen-point typeface on passé technology. The cover is made of 300 pound Lanaquarelle paper accented by wood grain buckskin paper and a walnut dowel, cork skin lining, Japanese bound. Book.
