I am pleased to announce that my first (and long-awaited) artist book is now a physical reality. The first edition, printed this month, is limited to an intimate run of 8 books.
About the book:
Eastern Sierra features 26 images of artwork by Celeste M. Evans created en plein air in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, California. The original images were drawn and painted on paper with a diverse arsenal of media, including oil pastel, soft pastel, gouache, watercolor, colored pencil, pencil, tempera, and ink. Filled with artistic renditions of the trees, forests, waterfalls, and mountains of the High Sierra, plus interpretations of Mono Lake, Bodie State Park (and some native animal friends), each image is accompanied by minimalist poetic text. A concise paperback of 55 pages measuring at 8.5″ x 8.5″, it is printed with archival ink on archival cotton paper. Eastern Sierra is composed, printed, bound, and signed by the Artist in limited editions. The first printing in September 2016 is limited to an edition of 8 books.
