2011 Spring Swap: Camille Riner

"Peace" -- Signs of spring are beginning to show here at my house. I thought that the images of the earth, sky and sun in this book would be a good thing to send out during this spring trade. I have a friend, Diane Knudson, who is a wonderful poet and inspired me to create this book using one of her poems. I had wanted to do a flag book and felt that the imagery in Diane's poem "Peace" would be complimented by the flutter of the "pages." Each stanza of the poem is written on separate flaps of the book which move back and forth as the book is opened and closed. An excerpt reads, "Two-legs walking in the lingering wind, sun's patterns paint the forest floor-Two dreamers drinking air - cool with greeny spring." "Peace" is a miniature book (5 x 2.5") with a carved apple leaf print of mine on the cover. -- Camille Riner
