Artist Statement:


    This elegant one-of-a kind codex bound in Moose hide uses type and scanned images to create a visual text that mirrors and enhances the written text. White-out, written by a well-known western writer Gary Holthaus, explores the relationship between light and shadow in human experience, using Moose hunting and driving an Alaskan white-out as metaphor.
