White Lepiota is a poetic response to a trip to Northern Iceland. Text and image reference arctic exploration, mythology, and archaeological sites in an attempt to bring together past and present, imagined and real.
The imagery is a combination of letterpress printing and hand drawn marks generated using chance operations of repetitive gesture and printing. The text is handset 12 pt Bembo and letterpress printed. Printed on Okawara paper and acid-free tracing paper, bound in a softcover case. A folded letterpress print of a path is included in the pocket of the case.
