  • "Trees has been made as a limited edition of thirty copies in the spring and summer of 2010....The images of palm trees have been made as monotypes which have been reproduced as high-resolution digital prints on transparent film. They are hinged between pages of Strathmore 2-ply museum board and acid free foamcore with architectural model trees. The windows in the foamcore were cut at Magnolia Editions, Oakland, California. The wooden boxes were acquired over a period of fifteen years with the hope that they would someday be useful in a book design with a strong vertical motif. The text pages were printed letterpress at JR Press, San Francisco, and the title on the side of the box was foil-stamped by John DeMerritt, Emeryville, California. The typeface is Poppl-Laudatio. Charles Hobson made the monotypes and designed and assembled the edition with the assistance of Alice Shaw"--Colophon
