This book considers how the invisibility of nature in daily life might affect people's sense of self. Empty Vessels ponders how the mental, spiritual, and intellectual elements of who we are might become dormant or barren as we adapt to an increasingly abstract world that feels increasingly remote from the natural environment.
Empty Vessels includes etchings and a poem by Chelsea Herman. Drypoints and spit bite etchings printed by hand on Gampi paper. The text was set in Centaur and Arrigi and printed letterpress. Cover size when closed: 12" X 17," 2013. The edition is limited to 20 copies, each signed and numbered.
