Raven's Revenge: An Athabascan Folktale (1992)
Artists' Book (handmade)
Retold and illustrated by Dale DeArmond
Edition of 5 (an additional two were produced)
Overall size: 9" x 10"
This artists' book consists of an envelope cover, two double-sided text pages, and three original wood engraving illustrations with linocut borders. A colophon is included. The engravings and linocuts were hand pulled by the artist from the original blocks on all rag, acid free paper: Rives standard white for the engravings; Rives BFK gray for the portfolio and borders; and Arches text wove paper for the overlay.
The story, handwritten by DeArmond, is presented on handmade Japanese paper. In addition to the five publicly-offered copies, an additional two were made, which were designated not for sale. Produced by the artist in September, 1992.
A copy is archived with the Anchorage Museum, as well with the Juneau Douglas City Museum. With respect to this unpublished DeArmond work, the story in this book will not be available here.
