If you really know me, then you already know I absolutely love finding and collecting art from the most unusual places. One of my favorites, are stylized illustrations I find in old books and manuals. For me; being able to feel the printed paper, and imaging I am actually holding the original artwork, is a magical and intimate experience that I often do not feel while looking at art in galleries and museums.
I love paper! I love wood. I love art; and so naturally I really love woodblock prints, especially when finding them so humbly tucked away in the pages of old books.
Happy Passover everyone!
