Artistic impressions of the Rio Grande Gorge
in woodblock and poetry.
Each folio consists of 8 to 12 pages bound in a heavy weight Rives Rag Paper. The cover design is a combination of serigraph and relief printing. The woodblocks illustrating each folio are hand-carved original designs by Leon Loughridge. All pages and accompanying prints were printed on archival papers. A full page, signed and numbered print is bound into the folio along with accompanying woodblock vignettes. There are one or two poems in each folio, selected from the twelve poems written by John Macker for the project. Silkscreen was used to print all the type and line work imagery.
