an Expedition with Mr.R ( the Raccoon )





" In search of a dim memory from times past,
Mr. R (the Raccoon) packed up his pouch 
and set off alone on an expedition.
Through fields and forests, villages and towns, 
storms and sunshine, through all the seasons of the year.
He came at last to a gate 
hidden behind a thicket of shrubs......"


Here is a 5 pages accordion postcard booklet made for Mr. R ( the Raccoon) ! Each illustration on the postcard follows Mr. R on his journey through four seasons of the year... This is also a little tribute to the Bay Area weather - where grass on rolling hills are yellow in summer, and heat is greater in fall....
I hope this would be a souvenir of the Bay Area, and also a friendly personal postcard to send to someone at far.

Each booklet is handcrafted, illustrations printed on watercolor paper and perforated to 5 postcards. There will be limited number available at APE this weekend, along side with Round Robin, and Daniela and Katy's beautiful books !
Our table number at APE is #330, please come on by !

I have admired this in the past but am researching printing a story at the moment, and was curious; how did you get this printed? I suddenly remembered this accordion book and came to comment to find out... if you can give me any info I'd appreciate it!

Thanks!
