POPPY is a handmade artist book, the first in a series called Luminous Bloom, a series that straddles fine art photography and the genre known as artists' books. It features twelve B/W images of the iceland poppy in abstraction, having been captured by way of multiple exposure; hardbound and covered in oatmeal linen, POPPY is printed on cotton rag paper, hand-sewn, signed, dated, and offered in a limited edition of 20. Given context by an original poem by Margaret Langhans, the photographs are a lush expression of line, form, shape and tonality.
