« Lichens », an original text by Marie Rouanet is accompanied by nine mezzotints in-text and an embossment by Judith Rothchild. The author and artist explore in prose and images the miniature world of lichens. The book, published in an edition of 50, is printed on Hahnmühle paper as a leporello with wrappers of « Mineralis » by Thibierge & Comar.

The mezzotints, as well as the screenprints on the end-papers, slipcases and boxes, were printed by the artist. The letterpress, hand set in Ramsès Maigre, was printed on an Adana 8" x 5", by Mark Lintott.

The boxes and slipcases are by Claude Vallin.

The deluxe edition of fourteen copies (1/50 - 14/50), is presented in clamshell boxes and includes an original signed mezzotint printed exclusively for this edition as well as a short text in the hand of the author. The first eight also include an original copper plate.

The books numbered 15/50 to 50/50 are presented in slipcases.

All the books are signed and numbered by the author and artist.

The text is in French. Format 8 x 12 in. Verdigris, 2002
