Petites Histories

Petites Histories features letterpress Janson text printed on Arches paper from photopolymer plates. The book’s paintings were made into Iris Prints that maintain the luminous and vibrant colors of the originals. The portfolio edition of 16 layered prints and stories is housed in a cloth-covered box with a three-sided tray. An original inset painting by Inez Storer adorns the cover.

Marie C. Dern with Jungle Garden Press in San Francisco said: “My intention in printing and bookmaking is to elucidate a text by the shape, binding, design, typography, and drawings of books, to make the experience of reading beautiful to the touch and the eyes as well as the mind, and to make the text understandable to the reader in the way I interpret it.”
