Wordless Books


The books are a collection of mixed media drawings made using clay, stamps, stencils, pastel, wax, graphite, charcoal, printing press, pen and ink. The drawings are bound in old leather covers, found years ago at a yard sale after someone removed the illustrations. The serendipitous idea of a wordless story is strengthened by the book cover’s title, Galerie Contemporaine des Illustrations Francaises.
