Handmade Path (limited edition pre-order)

45.00

This limited edition offset printed book Handmade Path is a collaboration by Professor Lu Jingren, Amanda Degener, Peng Wu, and artists around the globe. They answered six questions about their hand-making and design practices. Each artist gets an artist proof and there are 100 copies for sale. The cover is inspired by the calligraphy created by Professor Lu Jingren. It’s a made-up ancient Chinese character of a hand 手 growing out of the heart 心. It’s printed letterpress on handmade paper by Amanda Degener. The book is designed by Peng Wu.

It was possible to collaborate because Prof Lu Jingren traveled to the USA to be one of the keynote speakers at Codex in California and give a workshop and lecture at Minnesota Center for Book Arts. This activity was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a 2017 grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. We invited artists, Amanda organized the entries, and Jack Mader took incredible photographs of their handwritten answers. After three years we are fianally publishing finishing this book, why so long? All three collaborators got involved in other projects and there is that huge ocean between China and the USA, thanks for your patience.
