The Crane Wife

I only got three prints done, but I had a lot of planning work behind my book project. So here's what I turned in at the final; three prints, two of them in page mock-ups along with the little page number illustrations that no one understood until I did these pages in full. There are little errors here and there, but I'm happy with the images and I think the book as a whole has a lot of potential.

This looser style is really beautiful. You should work more like this!! The illustrations are super fitting for the style of the story too.

@Erin:
See, you THINK these are a looser style--but they're actually the most planned and labored over images of all, on account of being linocut prints. I just about broke my hand doing page 6. But I do really love the look and feel of this kind of printmaking, so hopefully next semester in The Illustrative Print, I'll be getting some more work like this done.
